Art: The Rise Of The Russian Avant-Garde @ MoMa New York
(Drivebycuriosity) - The early 20th century created a lot of disruptions. World War I and the Russian Revolution changed large parts of the world. This climate gave birth to the Russian Avant-Garde. A bunch of artists went radically new ways and experimented with abstract paintings and other art forms. New York`s Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) has now an exhibition called "A Revolutionary Impulse: The Rise of the Russian Avant-Garde" (Through March 12 moma). I present here my favorites from the show, a very subjective selection as usual.
Above "Theatrical Composition" by Alexandra Exter (ca. 19,25, oil on canvas) followed by "Rayonist Composition - Domination of Red" by Mikhail Larionov (1912-1913).
I enjoyed more of these geometrical compositions.
Above another nice selection.
As you can see these avantgardists also created architectural designs which could beautify any metropolis of today.
