Istoricheskii muzei: arkhitektura, inter'ery (The Historical Museum: architecture and interiors)

Moscow: Gos Istoricheskii muzei (GIM), 2015. sewn pb. As the interest in the history of the country arising from newly discovered artifacts and works of art grew during the mid nineteenth century (for example, Nicholas II commissioned a five-volume album of drawings of extant works of medieval art and architecture), the need for   a repository for items of material culture became evident. The result was not only the founding of a museum, but the construction of a building that would embody the museum's purpose. The Stat Historical Museum is thus a series of something like period rooms, an ambitious exercise in historicism. This book catalogues each interior with full-page illustrations and detailed descriptions of each different section of the museum. 253 p., approx. 250 color illus., Rus. Item #1323
