The exhibition is dedicated to the work of one of the key masters of the Russian avant-garde, the initiator of bold experiments that changed the artistic image of the 20st century.
Aristarkh Lentulov is one of the founders of the Russian reformers association, the Jack of Diamonds group, which brought up many avant-garde movements. The exposition introduces the works created by the artist during his active work in the association.
Visitors will see the paintings “Greek. A Sketch of the Fresco” (1910), “Portrait of M.P. Lentulova in a Blue Dress” (1913) and “Portrait of M.P. Lentulova next to a birch” (1914–1915). The main principle of Lentulov’s paintings at this period, as he defined himself, is a color dynamics. Architectural landscapes, portraits, still-life paintings are being penetrated by the active movement of color.
Three innovative paintings are complemented by archival materials, telling about the artist's life and periods of his work. There are also picturesque landscapes of Fedor Lentulov, the great-grandson of the avant-garde artist, on display.
In the frames of the exhibitions cycle #three, Underground Museum will represent art from different eras and styles — like a visual book, combining painting and sculpture, with multimedia immersion in the biography of artists and the historical context. The semantic center of each exposition will be three artworks, accompanied by video installations.
