This is the latest volume of a series about the myriad number of porcelain figures that were manufactured in the former Soviet Union. Together, the five volumes comprise the most comprehensive reference on this topic ever written. Individually, volumes one through three focus on a select number of the most popular themes that repeatedly inspired Soviet artists from 1918 to 1991. The themes explored in Volume Five are:

Women of the Soviet Land. Motherhood (Женщины Советской страны. Материнство.)

Women of the Soviet Land. Nude Figurines (Женщины Советской страны. Ню.)

Soviet Circus (Советский Цирк).

Happy Childhood. Preschoolers (Счастливое детство. Дошкольники).

Masters of Porcelain Portraying Themselves and Their Craft (Мастера фарфора о себе и своем деле.)

Porcelain Carafes (Графин)

Volume Five presents further biographical details about major ceramic sculptors as well as biographies of sculptors not covered in the previous volumes. This includes an accounting of every exhibition of Soviet porcelain in which the artist participated, as well as mentioning of all the major awards, most famous works, and any major publications and catalogs that showed specific examples attributed to this artist.

The book is highly recommended for anyone seriously interested in Soviet porcelain! Most of the previous volumes of the Nasonovs' series are long out of print and have already become bibliographic rarity. With only 1500 copies in print, Volume Five is certain to follow suit. We have only one copy remaining in stock at the moment, in brand new unused condition, but with minor damage to the corners of the dust cover (visible in our photos).
