Chapter Summary

The significance of the Russo-Japanese War in Russian history has almost always been located in its relationship to other events, the Revolution of 1905, World War I, or the Revolution of 1917, and not in the war experience itself. The interruption of revolution, lack of general public mobilization, and distance from far-away battles prevented serious consideration of the war in art for aesthetic realists, while the artists who challenged them for public dominance in the early twentieth century, the aesthetic modernists of the World of Art milieu, considered war an ugly, contemporary, and fleeting event that deserved no attention from the creative artist. The Russo-Japanese War was not a "dress rehearsal" and not part of a cycle of war and revolution in Russian artistic life; it represented just one moment in the continual development of artistic and intellectual culture in the last decades of Imperial Russia.
