"1000 Years of Russian
(English) Windows and Mac
State Russian Museum's collection represents all genres
of fine art: icons, applied art of the thirteenth through
twentieth centuries, painting, sculpture, numismatics,
graphic arts, and folk art.
The close to 1,300 images on this CD-ROM summarize the
richness of the collection and provide art historians
with more than enough material for studying stylistic
development. If informal viewers limit their experience
to the purely pictorial, so be it; the enigmatic quality
of many Russian works has power to capture the imagination
and requires no verbal explanation.
