Russian Avant-Garde



The Russian avant-garde is an umbrella term used to define the large, influential wave of modern art that flourished in Russia (or more accurately, the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union) from approximately 1890 to 1930 - although some place its beginning as early as 1850 and its end as late as 1960. The term covers many separate, but inextricably related, art movements that occurred at the time; namely symbolism, neo-primitivism, suprematism, constructivism, and futurism. My favorite Russian avant-garde artist is Wassily Kandinsky or Василий Васильевич Кандинский. I have included his most famous work.
