RUSSIAN REVOLUTION IN ART – RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE: 1910-1932, St Petersburg Gallery, 5A Cork Street, London W1, until 20 September 2014
Those of you who are interested in Malevich at Tate Modern may also like to know about this show which examines one of the great artistic differences of the Modernist period – figurative or non-figurative – and shows how the exhibited artists undertook their way to non-figurative and abstraction.
Among the artists featured are Kandinsky, Mikhail Larionov and Natalia Goncharova , from Malevich’s circle are Ivan Kliun, Ilya Chashnik, and David Yakerson and there are many others too.
An interesting factor in this exhibition is the inclusion of Soviet porcelain from the State Porcelain Manufacture (the former Imperial Porcelain Factory) and Dulyovo Porcelain Factory by the Suprematist artists Ilya Chashnik and Nikolai Suetin.
And very enjoyable it all is too.
