Degas Steps In Dance The history of Degas’s sculptures on the way from the darkness of the studio warehouse to the bronze statuettes and audiences in famous museums reads like a mystery novel, taking the sculptures from the original wax and plasticine models, through plaster casts, to bronze sculptures. This winding road took several decades. But, it was worth it. It showed us an Edgar Degas we had not known. Hard cover, 164 Pages, English/ Croatian ISBN 978-953-271-059-5

El Lissitzky was the Russian avant-garde's unofficial emissary to the West, traveling and lecturing extensively on behalf of Russia's modern artists who believed that abstraction was a harbinger of utopian social values. Basing himself in Berlin and Hanover in the 1920s, Lissitzky helped produce publications and organize exhibitions promoting both Russian and Western art that shared a common vision of aesthetics steeped in technology, mass production, and social transformation.
Selling Russia's Treasures documents one of the great cultural dramas of the twentieth century: the sale, by a cash-hungry Soviet government, of the artistic treasures accumulated by the Russian royal family, aristocracy, and church over the centuries and nationalized after the October 1917 revolution.
