9789004183438: Visualizing Russia: Fedor Solntsev and Crafting a National Past (Russian History and Culture)

The Romantic search for a national past was a European Preoccupation in the first half of the nineteenth century. In Russia, this process led to the formation of the Russian Style that has until today so captivated the world's imagination. While the manifestations of this style are easily recognizable in gleaming gilt, vibrant colors, onion domes, peasant costume, and tsarist regalia, hardly anyone has realized the pioneering and defining role that Fedor Solntsev (1801-1892) Played in the development of a Russian national aesthetic. This book rescues Solntsev from obscurity and celebrates his major contributions to the arts, archaeology, architecture, ethnography, icon painting, restoration work, and Russian nationalist ideology and also places his work in a general European context.
