About This Item

Lansere E. - covers.
There is first publication of Boris Kustodiev's illustrations to Gogol's stories Koliaska [The Carriage] and Shinel ' [The Overcoat]. These illustrations is called 'narrative' as they complete Gogol's text.
The best Russian publishing house of that time, Expedition of making of state papers, ordered them to Kustodiev in 1905 , but unfortunately the edition never appeared in such quality.
Kustodiev created series of drawings for each page after page with text and gave original interpretations. The scenes from provincial life to The Carriage show Kustodiev's irony. In his illustrations to The Overcoat he tried to follow text as close as possible.
Next time illustrations were published in 1946 and 1949. Original drawings keep by The State Russian museum and by The Institution of Russian Literature.
Boris Kustodiev studied in Art Academy by Il'ia Repin. He was a member of World of Arts movement.
There are works of artists N. Geradov, A. Roman, D. Gavril'tsev to Maiskaia noch ' [May Night, or the Drowned Maiden], Sorochinskaia iarmarka [Sorochynsky Fair], Vecher nakanune Ivana Kupala [St. John's Eve], Zakoldovannoe mesto (A Bewitched Place), Propovshaia gramota (The Lost Letter), Noch ' pered Rozhdestvom (Christmas Eve) also. Gogol's short stories are illustrated more often by painters, not graphical artists.
