         Soviet Impressionism
                1900-1980s

         By Vern G. Swanson

   A Fascinating Account of the Evolutionary
  Development of Impressionist Painting Within
           the Former Soviet Union

In this volume lavishly illustrated with 176 color plates, art
historian Vern G. Swanson, Ph.D. analyzes the body of
work now considered by many to be the twentieth century's
major realist school of painting. Soviet Impressionism
traces the discovery of Russia's "hidden treasures" in the
late 1980s to their introduction into the western world
throughout the early '90s and to their broad acceptance
today. Starting with the years leading up to the Bolshevik
Revolution in 1917, the author describes in sixteen chapters
the evolution of the artists and the era that influenced their
work. Swanson's narrative explains the distinctions within
the genre in straight forward prose, well annotated and
referenced. Further, it places this art in the context of one of
the most turbulent times in history: through two World Wars
and within the rise and fall of Communism. Dr. Swanson's
insights into the artists' on-going challenge to maintain
artistic integrity while avoiding denunciation or imprisonment
contribute to the uniqueness of this masterful work. Its
immense scope, depth and scholarship commend it as an
indispensable book for anyone interested in this dramatic
subject.

Dr. Vern G. Swanson's Soviet Impressionism dispels harsh
stereotypes of the twentieth century Russian Impressionist
school of painting. During the past eleven years Dr.
Swanson has made sixteen trips to Russia and other
countries of the former Soviet Union, visiting the studios of
some 400 artists. Such credentials qualify him as one of
the foremost experts on the genre, and he has written
numerous catalogs and articles. In a treatise entitled "The
Phenomenon of Soviet Art," he termed the introduction of
museum quality paintings from the former USSR into the
Western European and American art scene the most
significant art story of the 1990s. He is also known for his
publications on academic-realists of the nineteenth century,
especially Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema and John William
Godward. A graduate in art history from Brigham Young
University and the University of Utah, he holds a doctorate
from the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London.
Since 1980 he has been director of the Springville Museum
of Art in Springville, Utah. Previously he served at the
National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and as
assistant professor of art history at Auburn University.
