Soviet Art Reference Collection: Texts in English

Matthew Bown Soviet Art Reference Collection

Matthew Bown Soviet Art Reference Collection

Matthew Bown donated his collection of Soviet Art books to Carthage College to complement the Sam and Berry Shoen Soviet Art Collection. Hedberg Library houses this extensive collection of texts. 

One-third of the collection is in English, the remaining two-thirds is in Cyrillic. All the books are cataloged and are available for checkout from the library. You can find titles in the catalog using the search term "Matthew Bown Soviet Art Collection." You may further limit your search by using keywords. For example, search for "Matthew Bown Soviet Art Collection" AND Gerasimov. This will limit the results to titles within the Bown collection to those by or about Gerasimov.

The books are physically located in a special section in the library. Please ask an employee if you'd like to browse the collection. You may email questions to
