From Booklist
No critical overviews of contemporary artwork forget the Russian avant-garde, however the group's girls artists are hardly accorded in-depth examine. To redress this imbalance, the Guggenheim Museum formed a touring exhibition approximately six "Amazons" of the move: Alexandra Exter, Natalia Goncharova, Liubov Popova, Olga Rozanova, Varvara Stepanova, and Nadezhda Udaltsova, a massive project handsomely documented by way of Russian artwork specialist Bowlt, Guggenheim curator Drutt, and their members. Their volume's reproductions, many by no means prior to released within the West, make it beneficial, however the essays, either biographical and topical (analyzing, for example, the prestige of ladies artists in Russia), identify a shiny cultural context, whereas writings by means of the artists carry their voices into the combo.
