BOOK DESCRIPTION

A magnificent collection of 82 watercolours and lithographs depicting the buildings of the Moscow Kremlin, including the palaces and their interiors, churches and more. Large hard cover set housed in a sturdy pictorial slipcase and sealed.

The Moscow Kremlin boasts a unique collection of buildings which have formed a part of the public consciousness over the years. This was never more true than in the nineteenth century in which nostalgia and a rebirth of cultural pride created an atmosphere never to be duplicated. Several well-known watercolorists were commissioned to depict the Kremlin during the reign of Alexander II: the buildings, the sumptuous interiors of the Imperial apartments, the day-to-day life, religious celebrations and military parades. They bring us a vision of that eternal Russia, land of domes and icons, of pomp and gold. These watercolors, all carefully preserved in the archives of the Kremlin Museum, form a collection of outstanding richness that has never been published in its entirety. Carefully designed and researched, this book offers the opportunity to immerse oneself in the history of nineteenth century Russia.

Preface by Irina Alexandrovna Rodimtseva, Director of the Kremlin State Museum, Moscow. Introduction and commentaries by Irina Andreievna Bogatskaia.
