Art Nouveau during the Reign of the Last Tsars accompanies the Hermitage Museum's exhibition in Amsterdam. The goal of the book is to introduce the reader to the vast collection of Art Nouveau pieces held by the Hermitage, St Petersburg. The tsars received many objets d'art as diplomatic gifts especially from the French who were seeking Russia's support in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870. Gall�, the Daum brothers, Faberg� and Lalique are just a few of the artists acquired by the tsars and by wealthy private citizens. Art Nouveau had a major impact on Russian artists who drew on elements of the practice yet rejected others to create the Russian Stil Modern. Whilst celebrating the royal patronage of Western artists, the aim of this publication is also to reveal how medieval Russian architecture, fine art and folk art were all harnessed to create this unique Russian style.

This book brings together the large volume of work on late Tsarist Russia published over the last 30 years, to show an overall picture of Russia under the last two tsars - before the war brought down not only the Russian empire but also those of Germany, Austria–Hungary and Turkey. It turns the attention from the old emphases on workers, revolutionaries, and a reactionary government, to a more diverse and nuanced picture of a country which was both a major European great power, facing the challenges of modernization and industrialization, and also a multi-ethnic and multi-confessional empire stretching across both Europe and Asia.

Before becoming a city, St. Petersburg was a utopian vision in the mind of its founder, Peter the Great. Conceived by him as Russia's "window to the West," it evolved into a remarkably harmonious assemblage of baroque, rococo, neoclassical, and art nouveau buildings that reflect his taste and that of his successors, including Anna I, Elizabeth I, Catherine the Great, and Paul I. Crisscrossed by rivers and canals, this "Venice of the North," as Goethe dubbed it, is of unique beauty. Never before has that beauty been captured as eloquently as on the pages of this sumptuous volume. From the stately mansions lining the fabled Nevsky Prospekt to the magnificent palaces of the tsars on the outskirts of the city, including Peterhof, Tsarskoe Selo, Oranienbaum, Gatchina, and Pavlovsk, photographer Alexander Orloff's portrait of St. Petersburg does full justice to the vision of its founder and namesake. The text, by art historian Dmitri Shvidkovsky, chronicles the history of the city's planning and construction from Peter the Great's time to the reign of the last tsar, Nicholas II. Anyone who has ever visited--or dreamed of visiting--the city of "white nights" will find St. Petersburg irresistible.

In fascinating panoramic photographs Fritz Dressler introduces us to the landscapes, centres of the arts, villages and people of Russia. With a foreword by Klaus Bednarz, the book is further enriched by reproductions of major works of art. The many faces and aspects of the country are illuminated in a piece by Hans-Peter Riese, with his intimate knowledge of Russia. Heiderose Engelhardt, who has also provided the glossary of art history, uses typical examples of religious architecture to explain the origins of early Russian art. Vladislav Govorukhin has compiled a richly detailed and informative glossary describing the towns and cities and their most important monuments.
