Product Description


""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

We will not see her like again, Prof 18 Oct 2014
By Grace Fortiter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am clearly interested in this book, for it is a Festschrift honoring a lifelong friend who still, in her eighties, teaches Russian studies at Columbia University -- and by now has 3 generations of scholarly mentees and students. We will not see her like again, Prof. Elizabeth Valkenier has written on everything from Soviet penetration of African economies in the 70s, to Polish textbook revisions after WW2, to numerous major books on Russian and Soviet art history.
