Resource: Mir iskusstva (World of Art)
Description: Russian art magazine founded in 1898 in St. Petersburg by Alexandre Benois, Léon Bakst, and Sergei Diaghilev, who served as chief editor. The founders aimed at assailing what they saw as the low artistic standards of the obsolescent Peredvizhniki school and promoting artistic individualism and other principles of Art Nouveau. The magazine served as the organ for the artistic movement of the same name, and was supported by the Princess Maria Tenisheva and the industrialist Savva Mamontov.
