(Bygone Days), a monthly magazine published in St. Petersburg from 1907 to 1916 for readers interested in art and antiquities. The editors of Starye gody were V. A. Veresh-chagin and, beginning in 1908, P. P. Veiner. (Veiner was the magazine’s de facto publisher.)
The magazine was noted for its handsome design and high- quality illustrations. Contributing artists included A. N. Benois, V. A. Vereshchagin, N. N. Vrangel, N. K. Rerikh, and S. N. Troinitskii. By printing reproductions of art from earlier periods—primarily Russian art of the 18th and early 19th centuries—the magazine played a role in art preservation. Staryegody published several articles on little-studied aspects of Rus sian art history. The nature of the publication as a whole was determined by the aestheticism of the editors and principal contributors.
