About this Item

Unpaginated, approx. 160 pages. 26 x 20.5 cm. Forty-seven plates, four in color. Originally published St. Petersburg, 1918 in a limited edition of 750 copies. This copy in one of two postwar issues, and presumably one of a few issued for sale in England or North America, as it is stamped in English, "Printed in Austria" on front endpaper (contradicting perhaps intentionally, the attribution on the title page identifying the printer (in Cyrillic) as Muller of Postdam). An important album of of sketches and paintings depicting Russian peasant life on the eve of the October Revolution. Grigoriev along with Leon Bakst, Serge Diaghilev, Ivan Bilibin and others was a late member of the "Mir iskusstva" artists [World of Art] movement founded in St. Petersburg in 1899 around the art journal that shared its name. This group adopting graphical techniques from Art Nouveau, Cubism and Futurism would prove extremely influential for the generation of revolutionary artists to follow. Editions of this work are uncommon; indisputably scarce in such an excellent state of preservation. Text in Russian. Orig. pictorial cloth. Fine in slightly nicked dust wrapper in cardboard slipcase titled on spine. Bookseller Inventory # 19284
