A unique opportunity to be swept away by the fairytale mysticism of Chagall, the lyrical, romantic abstraction of Kandinsky, the metaphysical and conceptual purity of Malevich.
An intense, moving book that analyzes over 100 works from the great Russian artistic output of the early 1900s, to discover its roots and intense spirituality. The catalogue of the exhibition held in Verona, with authoritative contributions by experts on Russian art, sheds light on the connections and affinities between the great masters, but also on the interactions of Russian painting and its protagonists with the other avantgardes of the period. The aim is also to rediscover that single red thread that connects the orthodox iconographic tradition to folk art, generating the mystical, fairytale paintings of Chagall, the lyrical abstraction of Kandinsky, the conceptual and metaphysical figuration of Malevich. Alongside the works by the protagonists there are also many paintings by minor figures, to offer a detailed overview of Russian 20th-century painting.
