Limited edition with an extra suite . A graduate of the Moscow Academy, Zworykine found success early on in his career illustrating books with all the main publishing houses such as Knebel, Sytin, Mamontov, and Levenson. His style, which was influenced by Bilibin and the revival of traditional folk art was popular with the Imperial family and they invited him to paint the interior of the Fedorovsky Cathedral in Tsarskoe Selo. In 1921 Zworykine fled the Bolsheviks to France via Crimea, Turkey and Egypt. Despite leaving his homeland he continued to look to ancient Rus for inspiration. This luxurious publication displays a synthesis between Parisian book production and the vivid colours of Russian frescoes.
