Published to accompany an exhibition at the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, this magnificent volume traces the rich tradition of Russian Art inspired by the Fairytales and Folklore that are so much a part of Russian culture. Whether tales told in the oral tradition or committed to writing, the fantasy and magical elements embodied in these stories lend themselves to the imagination of the artist. Paintings, drawings, carvings, even furniture and ceramics illustrated here tell these cherished stories some of which, like "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," are known and loved in many other countries as well. The works reproduced here range from medieval to modern and represent the work of artists ranging from anonymous folk carvers to masters like Leon Bakst and Marc Chagall. Besides a wealth of illustrations, the book contains indexes of the names of artists and writers, fairytale and folklore subjects and artist biographies.
