Abstract Art in Russia: The Twentieth Century

14 december 2001—8 april 2002
The exhibition shows more than two hundred paintings and sculptures from the collection of the Russian Museum. The most important works on display are the revolutionary abstractions painted by Wassily Kandinsky in the early twentieth century, as well as examples of such other non-objective movements as Mikhail Larionov's Rayonism, Kazimir Malevich's Suprematism, Alexander Rodchenko's Constructivism and Pavel Filonov's analytic art. The Russian Museum also possesses a unique collection of abstractions by post-war underground artists from Leningrad and Moscow. Abstract painting experienced a revival in the mid-1980s, with works painted by such modern artists as Shalamberidze, Grigorian, Garev, Gubanova and Govorkov.
