Art of Russia (3 Parts)

Synopsis
A three-part BBC series in which historian Andrew Graham Dixon unlocks the mystery, variety and history of Russia’s unique art. He begins with a celebration of the great age of the icon, when Russia was at its most intense and inward looking. He then discovers Peter the Great’s artistic revolution; relives the glory days of the Russian high baroque; and assesses the influence of ""the Wanderers"" - an extraordinary group of artists comparable to the Impressionists. The series concludes with a look at the tumultuous period of 20th century Russia, from the Revolution of 1917 to the present day. Part 1 OUT OF THE FOREST; Part 2 ROADS TO REVOLUTION; Part 3 SMASHING THE MOULD.
