Man + air + space


The artist is Popova

The work of Lyubov Popova in the period from 1913 to 1916 can serve as a classic example of Russian cubotourism, a direction that arose as a result of the merger of French cubism and Italian futurism and at the same time possessed its own unique specificity. Nevertheless, the monumentality, compositional completeness and certainty, characteristic of this work of Popova, as well as the desire of the artist to maximize the unity of the volumetric and spatial structure, which in this case prevails over the problems of movement, dynamics, allow the picture to a greater extent to correlate "Man + air + space" (first exhibited at the exhibition "Shop" Under a slightly different name: "Figure + house + space") with cubism than with futurism.
