THE ORGANIC SCHOOL OF THE RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE: NATURE'S CREATIVE PRINCIPLES. Isabel Wunsche. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2015. Science and the Arts since 1750. 254 pp. with 53 ills. (12 col.). 25 x 18 cm. LC 2015-9322 ISBN 9781472432698 In English.
Publisher's description: The artists of the Organic School of the Russian avant-garde found inspiration as well as a model for artistic growth in the creative principles of nature. Isabel Wunsche analyzes the artistic influences, intellectual foundations, and scientific publications that shaped the formation of these artists, the majority of whom were based in St. Petersburg. Particular emphasis is given to the holistic worldviews and organic approaches prevalent among artists of the pre-revolutionary avant-garde, specifically Jan Ciaglinski, Nikolai Kulbin, and Elena Guro, as well as the emergence of the concept of Organic Culture as developed by Mikhail Matiushin, practiced at the State Institute of Artistic Culture, and taught at the reformed Art Academy in the 1920s. Discussions of faktura and creative intuition explore the biocentric approaches that dominated the work of Pavel Filonov, Kazimir Malevich, Voldemar Matvejs, Olga Rozanova, and Vladimir Tatlin.
