A sweeping marvellous overview of a thousand years of Russian history that is largely unknown and misunderstood in the West Lincoln is a master of narrative history drawing the reader into the lives of artists as if they too have a seat around the samovar and are sharing tea The ending is a little abrupt perhaps reflecting the uncertainty and upheaval of the formation of the new Russian Federation and perhaps in acknowledgement that a new epoch in artistic history is about to begin but had not at the time of printing really gotten underway Overall an
