Serfdom, Society, and the Arts in Imperial Russia

This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the relation among serfdom, society, and the arts in imperial Russia, and discusses narratives of awakening from 1838 to 1861 and the emancipation of the serfs under Alexander II. It highlights the contribution of various artists in the development of Russian art, including Anton Rubinstein in classical music and Alexander Ostrovsky in the theater. The chapter also mentions that while Russia was still in many ways a big importer of culture in the early nineteenth century, the export factor took on international significance, particularly in literature, music, and ballet.

Keywords:   serfdom, society, arts, imperial Russia, emancipation, Anton Rubinstein, Alexander Ostrovsky, importer of culture, literature, music
