Synopsis: This group of Russian painters, whose work is little known in the West, was the most remarkable in the history of Russian art. Founded in the mid-19th century, the Society for Itinerant Art Exhibitions (known as Peredvizhniki in Russian) consisted of a group of realist painters who decided that the best way for their work to be seen was to hold exhibitions in the Salon style of the French painters of the time, but in the form of travelling shows which moved around Russia. This helped to popularise the work of these painters, and of Russian art in general, and it helped them to sell their paintings and thus finance their work. The painters traveled with the exhibitions, recording the lives and customs of their fellow countrymen, and providing an insight into the life in Tsarist Russia, right up until the 1918 Revolution.

From Library Journal: In late Imperial Russia, a group of painters called the Society for Itinerant Art Exhibitions popularized their realistic paintings by exhibiting in salon-style shows that traveled around Russia. These artists made up, in fact, the most remarkable movement in the history of Russian art. The movement was democratic, aiming to make art accessible to the masses. By the 1870s, members concentrated on folklore and the natural beauty of the country, portraying the common people in a variety of working conditions and pastimes. Particularly fascinating and of great historical interest are the scenes of Russian peasants participating in religious ceremonies, e.g., Ilya Repin's "A Religious Procession in Kursk" captures the devoutness of the peasants. The scenes of the landscape, particularly the works of Isaac Levitan, are breathtakingly beautiful. The reproductions of these works are excellent, and the text is clear and concise. Though one wishes that there were an index and bibliography, this book would be a fine addition to most every serious collection.?Martin Chasin, Adult Inst. Bridgeport, Ct.
