V. Stasov, Sobranie sochinenii V.V. Stasova, Tom IV. (St. Petersburg: Energiia, 1906), 365. Stasov believed “the study, collection, and publication of embroideries were [. . .] tasks particularly suited to women.” From Stasov as quoted in Wendy Salmond, Arts and Crafts in Late Imperial Russia: Reviving the Kustar Art Industries, 1870-1917 (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1996), p. 48.


Stasov, p. 365. I thank James Joeriman for his help with translating the Stasov document.
