Natalija Goncharova

Natalija Goncharova...a fixed image on the past which shows how the contemporary were exactly like us: thinking themself as "modern".

Translated into painting: dynamysm, speed, modern subjects, light, shift towards abstract art and denial of the figurative...and yes, viva Cubism, of course!

Futurism and Cubism had in fact a strong influence on Russian art and she and her companion were leading members of the pre-Revolutionary Russian avant-garde:
The decade before the Russian Revolution was one of intense activity in the Moscow art world. Larionov and Goncharova were among the prime movers of this outburst, when young artists were full of new ideas. They met, organized exhibitions of their work, usually financed by some rich merchant, then fell apart with violent quarrels, only to form new combinations with different objectives and other patrons" (Goncharova: Stage Designs and Paintings, 8) [source]


Eventually, a new synthesis from Cubism and Futurism was born and named Rayonism: a further step towards the Russian abstract art.
