"The book is a catalog of the collection and a history of modern-art collecting in Russia. Among its nuggets is a rather acerbic explanation of why it was Moscow rather than St. Petersburg that produced Russia's great collectors of modern art: 'In their attempts to join high society, the merchants of St. Petersburg were too slavish to its tastes and fashions,' a useful reminder that true art collecting often requires going against the grain, not with it.Kostenevich, Albert Grigor'evich is the author of 'French Art Treasures at the Hermitage Splendid Masterpieces, New Discoveries' with ISBN 9780810938892 and ISBN 0810938898.
