Religioznyi lubok vtoroi poloviny XVIII – nachala XX veka iz sobraniia Russkogo muzeia (Religious Popular Prints, Late 18th to Early 20th c., from the Collection of the Russian Museum)

St. Petersburg: Rus muz, 2012. sewn cl. This is the first book dealing solely with the Russian popular print (lubok, lubki) on religious subjects. Seldom exhibited or studied in the Soviet period, these works illustrate how folk artists and print makers collaborated to provide religious images to those who could not afford icons painted on wood — often peasants and small craftsmen in towns. The popular prints also had a range that went beyond the canon of icon-painting and a style that typified the lubok: singular color combinations and a roughhewn strength of style. An appendix gives information on publishers, printers, and lithographers who specialized in popular prints. 96 p., 22 24 cm, 5 b-&-w illus., 92 color, Rus. Item #867
