Aristarkh Lentulov, St Basil’s Cathedral, 1913, Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow

This course will explore Russia's rich artistic past, from the birth of secular painting in the early 1700s, to the avant-garde's radical experiments in abstraction during the First World War. The many topics covered will include courtly portraiture under Catherine the Great, the critical realism of the Wanderers, and the sensational debut of the Ballets Russes on the Parisian stage.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
