5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent overview 8 Jan 2001
Format:Paperback
Grey provides an excellent introduction to Russian artists who are less well-known in the West only because of the Cold War and the lack of marketing on the part of the Russian museums. If Western museums had owned paintings by these artists, they would have been splashed across every screen saver, coffee mug and calendar. Grey does an admirable job of putting these artists into their fascinating historical context. If anyone is planning a trip to the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow or the Russian States Museum in Petersburg, this book is well worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Constructivism 21 Aug 2003
Format:Paperback
This is a useful book, largely focused on the Russian Constructivist movement and Malevich's Suprematist movement. Sadly most illustrations are black and white, although some only exist in photographic record which was only black and white at the time.
