I went to the Guggenheim yesterday to see the show Russia! It was amazing and the response was overwhelming...lines around the block all day. The show was as good as any that I've ever seen...and I have been to the Hermitage, Russian Museum,The Met, Louvre, Prado etc...this show was spectacular! Now, come and see it for yourself. It closes on January 11th, 2006 and if you cannot get here to see it PLEASE buy this book! It's a steal at $47.25...in fact buy both books! This sells for $75.00 at the show and believe me, is well worth it! I am a fan of Socialist Realism and the work of Nesterov, Surikov, Vasnetsov (His Knight at the Crossroads is a work of genius!)and of course Repin. They are all here and the works are printed beautifully and give you a perfect feel for the exhibition. Russia is a land of superb artwork, in many forms. Primarily painting here yet buy this book and you will not be dissapointed......superb, superb and superb! All responsible for this exhibition deserve the highest praise...this is what is best in world culture......Peace and Slovim Godim!(Happy New Year!)
