Charting the rise of Russian painting in the 18th and 19th centuries, this groundbreaking book recontextualises the work of major artists, revives the reputations of others, and explores the complex developments that took Russian painters from provincial anonymity to international acclaim. http://yalebooks.co.uk/display.asp?k=9780300184372

Dr Blakesley has also curated and written the catalogue for the exhibition Russia and the Arts: The Age of Tolstoy and Tchaikovsky which is on at the National Portrait Gallery until 26 June.

Part of a major new exchange with the State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, the exhibition focuses on the great writers, artists, actors, composers and patrons whose achievements helped develop an extraordinarily rich cultural scene in Russia between 1867 and 1914. http://www.npg.org.uk/whatson/russia-and-the-arts/exhibition.php
