This enormous volume appraises the life and work of Mikhail Larionov (1881-1964), avant-garde Russian painter and lifelong partner Natalia Goncharova. It covers his painting, drawing and works for the theater, drawing on museums and private collections both in Russia and abroad, as well as his under-recognized work as a curator of several key exhibitions of the modernist era, as well as his labor organizing.↵↵One section of the catalogue is dedicated to Larionov’s personal collection, reproducing photographs pertaining to the history of ballet, Russian and Asian luboks and the personal library of the artists, as well as other documents. These are published together with a chronology highlighting key events from Larionov’s life—exhibitions, performances, his work on various publications and his meetings with other artists.
