Pursuing Independence: Kramskoi and the Itinerants Vs. the Academy of Arts

The Russian Review. 2011. Vol. 70. No. 3. P. 252-271.

This article explores the sociocultural situation of the Petersburg Cooperative of Artists (Artel) and the Peredvizhniki and in doing so interprets the nature of Russian realist (in many respects, populist) art through the prism of the new reality artists of the time faced: the commodification of art and the commercialization of art’s circulation and distribution.
