Chagall to Malevich : the Russian avant-gardes
Chagall to Malevich : the Russian avant-gardes
130 masterpieces of painting demonstrate the parallel development of widely different styles, design principles and aesthetic ideas. The avant-garde artists influenced each other and were sometimes in conflict with each other. At the same time you could find advocates of representational Expressionism and supporters of pure abstraction; styles like Primitivism, Cubo-Futurism and Suprematism followed each other in succession. Surprising contrasts of works visualize the differences, so that the successive conflicting -isms are clearly demonstrated. Through this visual confrontation the picture of all the many different forms of Russian Avant-Garde come alive. With works by Altman,Chagall, Exter, Goncharova, Grigoriev, Kandinsky, Larionov, Lissitzky, Malevich, Petrov-Vodkin, Popova, Rodchenko and many others.
