Art of the Romanov Dynasty​

This is a four-part lecture on the art of the Romanov Dynasty that includes a video and a written essay. The first 100 years of the Romanov Dynasty, covered in Part 1, was a period of barbarianism as Russia struggled through the Middle Ages for hundreds of years longer than Europe. The next 100 years, covered in Part 2, is a time of westernization for Russia, and covers two of the most famous tsars – Peter the Great and Catherine the Great.
