Russian History xD
posted by Anon on .
I'm doing a project on Russian art, and I'm kinda confused. These are some things I got down. They're just jumbled thoughts. But did communism ending cause the renaissance?
Since Russia was a communist country, art used to be used to make the government look good. Art wasn't being used for expression.
When Russia was coming out of communism, they were able to express themselves more freely. Therefore, people started making art for the purpose of expressing themselves.
Russia had what you could call a 'delayed renaissance'. Dramatic westernization occurred while Peter the Great was ruler. Art from the western countries began to influence Russian art.
Communism was initiated in Russia in 1917 after the Revolution got rid of the czars. Communism essentially ended when the Soviet Union fell apart in 1991.
These sites should help you.
Thank you! :D
