Surveying developments in Russian portraiture from the 16th century through the early 1800s as well as the evolution of decorative art styles over the period, this catalogue offers striking full-page reproductions of 87 paintings and of ornate silver and gold chalices, jewelry, reliquaries and devotional objects from the State Historical Museum. Scholarly commentaries on many of the featured works augment seven broad-ranging essays discussing such topics as the influence of religious, political and cultural institutions on Russian fine arts and the displacement of the Byzantine mode of portraiture by Western European styles.
