Neolithic stone figures, Siberian shaman rituals, popular Chinese prints, Japanese engravings, Theosophical doctrine and Indian philosophy are some of the elements which inspired the Russians’ new artists and writers as they developed their aesthetic and theoretical ideas just before and after the Revolution of October, 1917.
