Chapter Summary

Visualizing Russia in the twenty-first century is an exercise that relies on easily recalled images of the pre-revolutionary past. This chapter presents an overview of the book which elaborates the origins of the Russian style in the 1830s and 1840s and celebrates the seminal role that Fedor Grigorevich Solntsev played in its development. Soviet art historians relegated this pioneering artist-archaeologist-ethnographer-restorer-iconographer to obscurity since the many facets of his talent expressed a deep belief in Orthodoxy and an unswerving devotion to the tsarist monarchy. Visualizing Russia offers a wealth of evidence to establish Solntsevs rightful position at the forefront of the movement that crafted the image of a Russian national past.
