*Ivan the Terrible
*Origins of Russian ballet and the lives of child dancers handpicked to live under the care of the Russian royal family
*Wonderful portrait of Fabrege
A real life changer and a real joy to read, with a nice flowing narrative style.
But along with the history of the great rulers of Russia is the story of how they all added to the body of work that makes Russian art some of the most beautiful in the world. Russians loved to live on a grand scale, and their art was as lavish as the lives they led. Even the common people had a great love for vivid colors and rich peasants made their wooden homes into works of art. The book comes with beautiful illustrations and leaves the reader wishing for more. It is great as a textbook in art history and history classes or for anyone who wants or needs to know more about the Russians. My copy of the book is worn and falling apart. I am going to order a new copy from [...] so I can keep this treasure for years to come.
In today's Western media and politics they seem to be painted always as evil and the Boogey Man. Howe pathetic and sad. Russia is also today scientifically, technologically and artistically very advanced and in fact, a European country.
My recommendation, if you are interested in this subject or will deal will Russia for profesional reasons, buy this book. You will not regret it.
