Amazons of the avant-garde: Alexandra Exter ... [et al.]
Early in the 20th century, a remarkable group of Russian artists ignited a revolution in the fine and applied arts. In recent years, many books have celebrated the achievements of this multifaceted avant-garde. But until now, none has focused exclusively on the achievements of women artists, who played a vital role in the movement.Accompanying an international traveling exhibition, this book profiles six key women of the Russian avant-garde. Richly illustrated with documentary photographs and color reproductions of more than 80 artworks, many of which have never before been seen in the West, Amazons of the Avant-Garde brings to life the disparate aesthetic visions of these revolutionary artists, all of whom were seeking, in the words of Olga Rozanova, "wholly new bases of artistic creation".
