For nearly 60 years, two renowned artist-brothers have painted together, often on the same canvas, chronicling one of the history's most dramatic periods through the eyes of Russian villagers. Impressionists Sergei and Aleksei Tkachev have been awarded the most coveted prizes in the art world of the former USSR and the Russian Federation, telling their nation's stories as they lived it under Communism, perestroika and the current system as it struggles towards democracy. This book is the first in the English language to be published on these remarkable brothers, and it includes 178 color plates that reflect their own life experiences and those of their rural neighbors.
