CDR-1356: SR Set: Russian Artists in Western Europe, 1900-1940

Russian artists made a major contribution in the exchange of ideas and styles among the international painters and sculptors working in western Europe between 1900 and 1940. Beginning with Sergei Diaghilev's introduction of Russian arts, music and dance, the west encountered new ideas from the flow of Russians to follow. In 1921 El Lissitzky became the Russian cultural ambassador to Weimar Germany, influencing both the Bauhaus and De Stijl movements. In Munich and Paris Russian students and emigres included Alexei Jawlensky, Wassily Kandinsky, Lyubov Popova, Sonia Delaunay, Alexander Archipenko and Marc Chagall. Russian artists such as these introduced new ideas of Suprematism and Neo-primitivism, while influencing the thinking and adding to the fertile brew of other current movements such as Symbolism, Cubism, Futurism, Fauvism.
