""From Realism to the Silver Age" is a wide-ranging collection that seeks to introduce continuity, depth, and complexity to the history of 19th-century Russian art, which the editors rightly claim has suffered from marginalization and simplistic categorizations. It will find a ready audience not only among students of Russian and European art history, but also among intellectual and cultural historians and has the markings of a fundamental work in the field." --Richard S. Wortman, Columbia University
