Unknown Socialist Realism. The Leningrad School. St. Petersburg,
Russian Painting Collectors' Club, 2007.
The book is a first inclusive publication on the history of the Leningrad
School, one of the brightest and significant phenomena in the
Soviet Art of 1930-1980 that strongly influenced its contents and
development. The book outlines basic periods of the school's evolution
from the period preceded its formation in the early 1930s up to
the early 1990s. Paintings reproduced in the publication belong to
large Russian and foreign private collections, some of the works
are published for the first time. This allows for a renewed and more
comprehensive assessment of the art heritage of individual painters
and the epoch in general.
