Cuneiform Texts in the Collection of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts. Vol. 1 / Administratives Texts from Tello from the Ur III Period
B. Perlov, Yu. Saveliev. Ed. By N. Koslova.

This volume begins the publication of the cuneiform collection of The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow. Despite the relatively small size of the collection (about 1760 tablets), it is a comprehensive representation of the various chronological periods of the ancient Near East, from the pre-Sargonic (the middle of the third millennium BC) to and including the Neo-Babylonian and Persian (the sixth and fifth centuries BC). The collection is also diverse in content, featuring administrative and economic documents, legal and literary texts, and letters. The core of the museum collection is 1320 tablets from the holdings of Nikolay Likhachev, a scholar and a passionate collector at the close of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. He was the first person in Russia to begin collecting cuneiform objects systematically. To a great degree we have Nikolay Likhachev to thank for the richness of the cuneiform collections in Russian museums. After the 1917 revolution Likhachev's holdings were acquired by the government and divided into two parts. One part remained in Saint Petersburg and now constitutes the basis of the cuneiform collection of the Hermitage Museum. The other part eventually reached Moscow, arriving at our museum in 1924. The cuneiform texts in Russian museums have been published piecemeal – at different times, in different countries, and in different languages. Mikhail Nikolsky's famous two-volume catalogue of the tablets in the Pushkin Museum, published in 1908 and 1915, deserves special recognition. One may without exaggeration call it a model of scholarly publication. Throughout the 20th century this catalogue remained the basic source for texts from Likhachev collection. During the 1920s several texts were published by Vladimir Shileiko, the curator of the Pushkin Museum collection from 1924 to 1930. Shileiko examined most of the tablets and described them in an inventory that he assembled. Also worthy of special mention is a book by the famous American Assyriologist Samuel Kramer. In 1957 Kramer worked in our museum for more than a month while studying a Sumerian tablet that is inscribed with two previously unknown literary texts – funerary elegies. However, significant parts of our cuneiform holdings remain unpublished and inaccessible for research. Therefore, for the first time in Russia this collection is published in full, in a single series, on the basis of uniform scholarly principles. In English

The Museum of Russian Impressionism. Collection Catalogue
Elena Akopova, Ksenia Ilinykh, Vladimir Lenyashin, Anna Manukyan, Yulia Petrova, Natalia Sviridova, Maria Tokareva, Anton Uspensky

In Russia, Impressionism had the misfortune of being overtaken by subsequent Avant-Garde in the midst of its development. Later, after the Russian Revolution, new ideology considered this positive art of light colours and fleeting moments "bourgeois" and, therefore, pernicious. But despite everything, Impressionism survived and revived. Permanent exhibition of the Museum discloses an entire history of Russian Impressionism, featuring artworks by Konstantin Korovin, Boris Kustodiev, Nikolay Bogdanov-Belsky, Valentin Serov, Igor Grabar, Pyotr Konchalovsky and many other prominent masters

Valery Koshlyakov. Catalogue

Valery Koshlyakov is one of the most authoritative and interesting voices of contemporary Russian art and this volume traces his complex artistic development from his debut at the Rostov Academy and his participation in the avant-garde group "Art or Death", to his work for the Biennials in Venice and Sao Paulo. A development characterised by great experimentations and works that matured in parallel with the great political, social and economic changes that have so radically transformed Russia since the 1980s. A fascinating intersection of history, culture, politics and art that saw Valery Koshlyakov's work gather up the stimuli and emotions of this great historical change, placing his own language into the most radical expressions of contemporaneity. Today Koshlyakov lives and works between Moscow and Paris, his works have been exhibited in the most prestigious international art events and are part of the permanent collections of some of the most important museums in the world. This book brings together, along with several critical and philosophical essays on Koshlyakov's work, a very rich iconographic documentation of his entire oeuvre: from the grand installations to the little Iconus, from the paintings to the "cardboard" works, from the drawings to the sculptures, it forms an essential point of reference to know and study one of the greatest Russian artists alive today

Album. Faberge. Easter Gifts
T.N. Muntyan.

The present book is dedicated to the Easter gifts created by the prominent Russian jewellery house owned by Carl Fabergé – the famous court jeweler. Among the admirers of his talent were the members of the royal family. Carl Fabergé was the official supplier to the imperial court from 1885 when the first Easter egg was made for the Empress Maria Fyodorovna by order of the Emperor Alexander III. When Nicholas II ascended the throne, the firm was to make two eggs — for the dowager Maria Fyodorovna and the Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna. Each new egg was to be different from the previous one, and ideally, it should surpass in an unusual artistic decision. The Moscow Kremlin Museums possess the largest collection of Imperial Easter eggs created by the House of Fabergé. These creations are connected not only with the life of the imperial family, but also with the Russian history during its crucial period.

Foreign Orders of the Russian Emperors
Luidmila Gavrilova

The monograph written by the distinguished specialist in the field of phaleristics and medal art encompasses the results of countless years of research and attribution of foreign orders from the museum's collection. The study of archival documents not yet in scientific circulation, of a wide range of specialized literature and evaluation of historic objects available in public and private phaleristic collections made it possible to light a wide range of issues connected to foreign orders. First foreign orders were bestowed in the reign of Peter I and by the end of the XVIIIth century the Russian Empire had formed its own award system, presenting awards that were on a par with those of other European states. The research focuses on a time when conferring of highest state awards served as the most significant foreign policy instrument ensuring improvement of diplomatic relations and guaranteeing acquisition of political allies. Each decoration presented to the Romanovs marked a new stage in the strengthening of imperial power in Russia, the rise of its significance and international standing. The display of the late emperor's awards in mourning ceremonies became an integral part of the imperial ceremonial. This monograph contains rich illustrative material, including previously never published photographs of historic objects from the collection of the Moscow Kremlin Museums, unique documentary evidence and illustrations of masterpieces from European and American art collections.

Power, diplomacy and culture at the court of Henry VIIIth
Ekaterina Karavaeva

This book explores the representation of power of King Henry VIII (1509–1547) in the sphere of international relations. The author examines Anglo-French and Anglo-Imperial contacts in the first half of the 16th century and analyses the means by which the image of the English monarch was formed based on internal and external audiences. International politics stimulated a new language of representation and enabled the evolution of images of power and a more complex political discourse in the symbolic space of ceremonies connected with international relations. Separate chapters of the book deal with the sources of Henry VIII's public image, the representation of his power during ceremonies associated with war and peace, and the changes which took place in the system of demonstration of royal power during the Reformation. A central place in the book is given over to personal meetings between monarchs who were of prime importance for international relations during the 16th century. Such meetings were grand and carefully planned theatrical events. The research is based on a broad range of written and visual sources, including little-known documents from the archive of the College of Arms in London

Its main principle in any museum is traditionally focused, first of all, on supporting the exhibitions (catalogs, albums, booklets, brochures, guidebooks, etc.) and popularizing its own collection. Books written by art historians and researchers, materials of scientific conferences, catalogs, monographs are devoted to the main expositions of the museum collections. However, museums try to go beyond this program: they publish books on contemporary culture, on contemporary art, new media, architecture, photography, cinematography, theater, philosophy and psychology of art, sociology, as well as fiction, books for children, etc.

As part of the Museum Line, this time we have collected for you a selection of books published by domestic museums in foreign languages. Some museums have many such publications, while others have single examples. We want to draw the attention of foreign partners, colleagues and readers to such publications.

Obviously, most foreign readers interested in museum publications do not read in Russian. We do not aim to reach a certain target audience, but nevertheless, we focus on potential foreign readers and visitors to our museums and the launch of this virtual exhibition is also the start of a small inter-museum research (although the museums themselves also conduct such research). We would like to draw the attention of our foreign colleagues, amateurs of Russian and contemporary Russian art, who are interested in the activities of leading Russian museums, that more and more often they have the opportunity to read about it in their native language. The virtual exhibition may become another channel of communication, another way to travel around the Museum Line project and replenish the virtual library of the project. Besides, it is one more small step towards new collaborations, new partnerships and joint publishing projects that will help attract a wider foreign audience to Russian museums.

We hope that the publication of books in foreign languages, the study of the audience and mechanisms to attract it will be the topics of discussion at our next book fair.

The exposition includes books of GULAG History Museum, Moscow Kremlin Museums, Museum of Russian Impressionism, The Pushkin State, Museum of Fine Arts, The State Tretyakov Gallery.
