In The Russian Style
New York: The Viking Press, 1976.
184 pages. A study of the stupefying levels of wealth displayed in the courts of Russia, during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
The royal and aristocratic families competed to outdo each other with opulent furs, silk costumes and jewelry, on a scale unlike any other in Europe.
Prints, paintings and costumes from The Metropolitan Museum illustrate some of this rich history.
