IL SIMBOLISMO RUSSO: SERGEJ DJAGILEV E L'ETA D'ARGENTO NELL'ARTE (Russian Symbolism: Serge Diaghilev and the Silver Age in Art). Ed. by Valerij Aleksandrovic Dudakov. Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice, 1992. Organized in association with Olivetti, Milan, and Russian International Culture Foundation. Published by Electa, Milan. 236 pp. with 176 ills. (108 col.). 27 x 23 cm. LC 93-169247 ISBN 8843540874 In Italian.
Documenting some 250 paintings, drawings, sculptures, scenographic designs and other works selected from private collections in Russia, this catalogue examines the predominantly decorative mode of Symbolism that flourished among early 20th-century Russian artists, many of whom achieved renown in Paris through the efforts of celebrated ballet impresario Diaghilev (1872-1929). Illustrations of stylistically diverse portraits, landscapes, mythological images, still lifes, costume designs and other works by some 65 artists (including Benois, Bakst, Vrubel, Serov and Korovin) are prefaced by six essays discussing the history of the Symbolist movement in Russia and Diaghilev's central role in its development.
