Self-Portrait with Yellow Lillies, oil on canvas - 77 x Petersburg, presented a massive exhibition called "The Great Utopia: The only "Amazon" not included in the earlier show was Natalia Goncharova, presumably because she and her long-time companion, Mikhail Larionov, left Russia for good inbut despite the fact that she and Larionov are considered key members of the avant-garde and remained, into the s, sympathetic to the new regime in their homeland.
In other words, "avant-garde" has a somewhat different meaning in each case. The earlier show, of which I have only seen the catalogue, has Kasimir Malevich and Vladimir Tatlin as its seminal figures and the Liubov popova essay paintings of Suprematism as its starting point, with some slight indications of Cubist and Futurist precedents.
The current show starts, at least with Goncharova, infocuses a good deal on Cubist and Futurist works, and also continues beyond the Revolution into the s.
The time before was one of great ferment throughout Russia during which the visual arts and poetry particularly were undergoing tremendous changes, parallel to but not necessarily identified with changes in the political and social fabric of the country. Peasant Woman in Two Dimensions ofas the "Utopia" show did, establishes a rather harsh ideological edge for the entire enterprise of Russian art during the period that followed, which is then, in retrospect, confirmed and hardened under the increasing rigidity of Soviet rule.

Olga Rozanova Portrait of a Lady in Pink Portrait of Anna Rozanova, the Artist's Sisteroil on canvas, x cm Museum of Visual Arts, Ekaterinburg In the light of women's art, at least that which has not been infected by the myth, the monolithic view of art as a measure of history breaks down.

Goncharova was particularly important, the star of several shows from some of which her work was removed by policea center of critical attention, and the subject of three one-person exhibitions, including one in Moscow in that showed of her works.
While there might have been fewer women artists, they were a constant force, in exhibitions, critical notice, and invention, between and the early s.
Rozanova, like Goncharova, battled for her primacy, and in Malevich called her the "only true Suprematist.
Popova worked closely with Tatlin and the painter Alexander Vesnin. Rozanova created a series of Cubo-Futurist books in with the poet Alexei Kruchenykh, and in guided him in making collages for an album called Universal War. Stepanova collaborated with poets Kruchenykh, Velimir Khlebnikov, and Vladimir Mayakovskyworked on her own experiments in automatic and phonetic writing, and then joined her companion Alexander Rodchenko on a variety of projects.
And Udaltsova was allied with Tatlin with whom she later splitwith Vesnin and Rodchenko, and finally with the painter Alexander Drevin, whom she married in Male artists regain their humanity in the company of women.
