Art History Mornings at The Beecroft Gallery
Saturday 27th July, 10.30am-12.30pm
with Dr ML Banting
The Art of Natalia Goncharova
(Post-Impressionism in Moscow)
In reflection of the first UK retrospective exhibition of Russian artist Natalia Goncharova currently at Tate Modern, today we will explore her art in the social, political and artistic contexts of pre-Revolutionary Moscow.
What happened when Goncharova brought Post-Impressionism, in all its glorification of colour, texture and dynamism, to Russia?
And how did she unite this modern visual aesthetic with traditional folk arts, creating wholly new ways of seeing her native country?
