Exhibition of Léon Bakst and Natalya Goncharova Opens in Moscow

On February 13 the Kournikova Gallery opens the exhibition Natalya Goncharova and Léon Bakst. Working with Ornament.

Ornament was equally important for Natalya Goncharova and Léon Bakst, in spite of the fact that she was an avant-gardist, and he was a member of the decadent movement Mir Iskusstva (i.e. World or Art). 

      In the early 20th century the interest in ornaments walked hand in hand with interest in folk and traditional art in general. Besides, both Natalya Goncharova, and Leon Bakst worked on stage design of theatre performances and industrial design in different years. In the 1910s Natalya Goncharova devised wall-paper patterns for the Moscow Wallpaper Factory and fabrics sketches for Nadezhda Lamanova Fashion House, and later worked as a stage designer for Sergei Dyaghilev’s Russian Seasons (Ballets de Russes). Léon Bakst, having emigrated to America, created sketches for the American silk manufactory. These ornamental sketches were displayed in the gallery last year. Now his sketches printed in an edition of 50 copies will be exhibited along with art works by Natalya Goncharova.

      The exhibition runs till April 13.
