Abstract

The following dissertation attempts to deal with the subject of the unofficial Russian art of the 1960s and its avant-garde role in the development of Russian art as a whole as well as its intrinsic links with tradition and the first Russian Avant-Garde at the beginning of the 20th century. The Introduction consists of a brief history of Russian art for a better understanding of its historical links and European influences. The first chapter approaches the subject of the first Russian Avant-Garde of the 20th century and chapter two explores the reasons of its decline and triumph of Socialist Realism. In the last three chapters the second Russian Avant-Garde of the 1960s is explored. The most comprehensive way to do this was to study and catalogue works of the three most important artists of the period who may be dissimilar in their styles and techniques but are united in their desire to express themselves, to be recognised and to place Russian art on an international level. The artists' examples were also used to show their milieu and the origins of the ideas of the Avant-Garde of the 1960s and to evoke the atmosphere of the period. The most significant art movements and groups of the 1960s and 1970s are also described. The role of the art of the 1960s is evaluated in the Conclusion. The terms and names in Italics are explained in the Glossary.
