9780810118263: Valentin Serov: Portraits of Russia's Silver Age (SRLT)

At the age of 23, in 1888, Valentin Serov burst onto the Moscow art scene with his portrait, "Girl with Peaches". Painted in the Impressionist manner, this debut work heralded the change from 19th-century realism to 20th-century modernism in Russia. He quickly became the pre-eminent portraitist of Russia's Silver Age. This text casts the artist's work against the gilded age of turn-of-the-century Russia, an era when wealth and flashy consumption abounded as revolutionary change was taking place on all levels of society. Painting prominent people of the day in business, government, society, the nobility and the arts, Serov created a gallery of Russia's important figures - figures seen with a sharp eye and painted with subtle irony. Yet even when his commissions regularly included such lucrative subjects as the Tsar or captains of industry, Serov's paintings explored a fast-changing society through daring studies of women and probing character studies. Through the early 1900s he continued to learn from and react to new movements in western art, developing a distinctive style until his untimely death in 1911.

From the Publisher:

An affordable, well-illustrated work on this important Russian painter. Features famous portraits of Tsar Nicholas II, Felix Yusupov (one of Rasputin's assassins), and others. Like Valkenier's other books, this one can expect to get wide review attention.

From the Back Cover:

Valentin Serov (1865-1911) burst onto the art scene at the age of twenty-two with his portrait Girl with Peaches. Returning from abroad, after firsthand exposure to Dutch, Italian, and Spanish masters, the young painter was determined to portray human beauty. In a short time Serov became the preeminent portraitist of Russia's Silver Age.
Elizabeth Kridl Valkenier weds art criticism to social history in her study of Serov. She casts the artist's work against the Gilded Age of turn-of-the-century Russia, an era when money and consumption abounded and revolutionary change was taking place at all levels of society. Painting prominent people of the day in business, government, society, the nobility, and the arts, Serov created a gallery of Russia's important figures-figures seen with a sharp eye and painted with subtle irony.
Respected for her studies of Ilya Repin and Russian realism, Valkenier brings well-deserved attention to an artist largely undiscovered in the West.
