Russian, Ukrainian, Latvian, and Estonian Art in Benezit

Dr. Alla Rosenfeld, Guest Editor

In 2015 and 2016, the Benezit Dictionary of Artists was pleased to present a group of 36 new and over 90 significantly updated articles on Russian artists as well as 39 new biographies of Ukrainian, Latvian, and Estonian artists. These individual essays surveyed a wide range of styles and movements and characterize the key features of each artist’s work.

The extensive revisions cover Russian art of the 18th-20th centuries and contain a great deal of new scholarly information about such diverse Russian artists as Ivan Nikitin, Dmitry Levitsky, Semen Shchedrin, Konstantin Makovsky, Vassily Surikov, Isaak Levitan, and Leon Bakst. Important additions also include updates to various Russian artists’ bibliographies and auction records.

The update also includes well-deserved coverage of nonconformist art from the former Soviet Union, reflecting its complexity and diversity, and featuring biographies of such artists as Mikhail Shvartsman, Leonid Lamm, Igor Makarevich, Rimma Gerlovina, Valentyn Khrushch, Toomas Vint, Raul Meel, Ilmãrs Blumbergs, and Valdis Celms. We are particularly pleased to introduce many post-Soviet contemporary artists, currently working in Russia, Ukraine and the Baltics. These artists include Alexander Brodsky, Dmitry Gutov, Irina Korina, and Andrei Molodkin (Russia); Oleg Golosiy, Oleg Tistol, and Mykola Matsenko (Ukraine); Miervaldis Polis and Frančeska Kirke (Latvia).

The focus of Western art history has been overwhelmingly on Russian art while very few serious English-language studies were dedicated to the art of the former republics of the Soviet Union, including Ukraine, Latvia, and Estonia. After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, these former republics became independent, sovereign states. Representing the many facets of artistic production in Latvia, Estonia, and Ukraine during the 20th-21st centuries, new articles on artists of these nationalities may also serve as a good introduction to the history and culture of these regions.
