Amazons of the Avant-Garde
Alexandra Exter, Natalia Goncharova, Liubov Popova, Olga Rozanova, Varvara Stepanova and Nadezhda Udaltsova
First edition. Paperback. 25.5 × 19cm, 375pp
Amazons of the Avant-Garde features the pioneering Modernism of six artists—Alexandra Exter, Natalia Goncharova, Liubov Popova, Olga Rozanova, Varvara Stepanova, and Nadezhda Udaltsova—all of whom shared an ambition to discover what Rozanova described as "new bases of artistic creation." This illustrated book accompanied the Royal Academy exhibition and explores the vital role that each artist played in the formation of a radical cultural enterprise—the art of the Russian avant-garde—through an examination of their original and independent approaches to art making. In doing so, the exhibition traces the evolution of modern Russian painting from Neo-Primitivism, Cubo-Futurism, and Rayism to Suprematism and Constructivism.
A good plus copy, with light wear to the covers and a slight crease to the spine.
