The Russian vanguards arrive at the Mapfre Foundation


MAPFRE Foundation presents From Chagall to Malévich: art in revolution, a fascinating exhibition that brings together more than ninety pieces and twenty-three publications by the best artists who, during the first decades of the 20th century, moved ahead of modernity, in a way never seen in Russia before. The exhibition has been curated by Jean-Louis Prat, chairman of the Marc Chagall Committee and former director of the Marguerite Foundation and Aimé Maeght.

The exhibition has as reference figures Marc Chagall and Kazimir Malévich, since they represent two poles in the innovations of the pictorial avant-garde. Between them, the work of another twenty-seven artists is displayed, in which stands out the presence of an important group of women artists, whose work was fundamental in the development of the Russian avant-garde, in an experience of feminization of the arts that would take years to repeat itself. The artists Natalia Goncharova, Liuvob Popova and Nadezhda Udaltsova, among others, demonstrate in this exhibition how the artist woman became one of the engines of the evolution of the Russian avant-garde.
