Blitz and Blockade: Henry Moore at the Hermitage
Henry Moores evocative drawings from the so-called Shelter series sketches made in London's underground when it was used as a bomb shelter during the London Blitz of 1940-41 provide the heart of this book, with over 70 drawings and seven sculptures included. However, based on a firstever collaboration between the Henry Moore Foundation and the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, the book also reveals some remarkable parallels with Russia's wartime experience by including drawings sketched in the basements of the Hermitage during the Siege of Leningrad which started in September 1941 and lasted for 900 days, during which time almost a third of the population died from starvation. Sketched by a young architect, Mikhail Nikolsky, the Hermitage drawings provide a fascinating counterpoint to Moores shelter drawings, which are now regarded as a high point in the creative life of one of Britains most prolific and admired sculptors of the 20th century. Timed to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Siege in 2011, this book also includes documentary photographs of both the Blitz and the Siege of Leningrad.

From Russia: French and Russian Master Paintings 1870-1925: from Moscow and St Petersburg
This book explores the connections between French and Russian art from the mid-nineteenth century until the 1920s, a period that witnessed the emergence of some of the most important developments in modern art. It includes outstanding examples of Salon painting, Impressionism, Fauvism, and Cubism in France and related movements in Russia such as The Wanderers, Constructivism and Suprematism. It documents key episodes in the story of this fascinating exchange. For example, the vital role played by the two great Russian collectors Ivan Morosov and Sergei Shchukin, whose pre-eminent collections of French art were an inspiration to the Russian avant-garde; the ballet impresario Diaghilev's promotion of Russian art in France in 1906; and Matisses' visit to Russia in 1911.

The Hermitage XXI: The New Art Museum in the General Staff Building
Founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great, the Hermitage Museum is one of the largest museums in the world. In early 2000, it was decided that the eastern wings General Staff Building (182030) should be converted into a museum of 19th and 20th century art, and an international architectural competition was held. St Petersburg-based Studio 44 won the commission for the elegant manner with which it addressed the projects complexity, by preserving the integrity of the original design, adapting a ministry building into an exhibition space, incorporating 21st-century museum technologies and connecting to the main buildings and public areas of the city beyond. The centrepiece of the design is a breathtaking enfilade that will enthral visitors to the new space. The scale and dramatic outcome of the building provides a treasure trove of information and inspiration for architects, museum visitors, curators and anyone interested in Russia's rich cultural heritage, of which this building marks a new chapter.
