    1. A nice survey of Russian painting, emphasizing the 19th and early 20th centuries (there are some earlier and later works for context). In a volume this size there can be no pretense of comprehensive coverage, but the works and artists chosen here are fairly consistently excellent and represent the traditions pretty well. It's a large-format quarto, with large, very good color reproductions.
