The Art Nouveau movement in Russia was known under the name of 'The World of Art'. This association grouped a remarkable collection of artists and poets at the end of the 19th century. Inspired by the poetic ideals of Neo-Romanticism and Symbolism, they extended their influence into all forms of plastic and literary composition. Certain members of the group became world-famous for their book illustrations and theatrical decors. The illustrations include paintings, book illustrations, theatrical costumes, and decors from such members as: Alexander Benois, Leon Bakst, Mstislav Dobujinsky, Boris Kustodiev, Evgeni Lanceray, Anna Ostrumova-Lebedeva, Konstantin Somov, Alexandre Golovin, Mikhail Vrubel, Valentin Serov, Ivan Bilibin, Dimitri Mitrokin, Sergei Tchekonin, and others.
