Mir iskusstva [Мир искусства; World of Art] was a society, exhibiting organization and a magazine, founded in St Petersburg in 1898. It brought together artists chiefly, but also poets and musicians; prominent members were Benois, Diaghilev and Bakst. They were in revolt against the 'provincial nationalism' of the Wanderers and in contrast declared for 'art for Art's sake' and close ties with Western European ideas. The magazine (1899-1904) was edited by Diaghilev, and his Ballet Russe is the group's most notable production, to which most of its members contributed.
