Publisher Description

Laura Engelstein takes a historic approach to defining the powerful women that dominated the Russian avant-garde in late 19th and early 20th century. This text traces the genealogy of the Modern Russian woman from the patriarchic monarchy that became dominant in the late 16th century, to the Soviet future (and hoped-for equality) that awaited the women artists of the Russian avant-garde. Taking a deeper look into the lives of Alexandra Exter, Natalia Goncharova, Liubov Popova, Olga Rozanova, Varvara Stepanova, and Nadezhda Udaltsova this essay explores their formative experiences and emphasizes the role of the arts-and-crafts movement in the propagation of women’s art.
