Really Good Book
on May 26, 2012
This book is filled with great paintings and drawings that are reproduced in quite good quality and size. Serov was a real master, especially at portraiture, but he also did great genre, historical and fictional scenes.
While I haven't read much of the text yet, it appears to give a good overview and coverage of Serov's life and work, including his life chronology at the end with a few photographs.
The main point of a book like this, in my opinion is to enjoy the artwork and to have it reproduced in a way that does it justice. This book, printed in Italy, does a good job at presenting the art. And the price at this time is incredibly affordable. If the previous Repin book by the same publisher is any example, availability at a low price won't last long.
