Keywords: the global art process, the main historical periods, Postomanticism


The essence of the series of essays published by the magazine is that with the utmost conciseness of presentation, it provides a summary of the main phenomena of world artistic culture, covered in general both from the point of view of the overall historical process and in relation to the various arts (literature, the fine arts, architecture, music, theater and cinema). At the same time, the customary categorization of national schools and the division into the separate arts with the genre specification inherent in each of them is overcome, which meets the positive trends of globalization and provides a holistic view of artistic phenomena. The following artistic and historical periods are examined in their respective stages: the Ancient world, Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Baroque period, the Enlightenment, Romanticism, Postromanticism, the first, second and third Modernist periods, the Postmodern trend, and as an afterword — “The Golden Age of Russian Artistic Culture.”
