NATHALIE GONTCHAROVA, MICHEL LARIONOV. Centre Georges Pompidou, Musee national d'art moderne/Centre de creation industrielle, Paris, 1995. Collections du Musee national d'art moderne. 270 pp. with 437 ills. (100 col.). 30 x 24 cm. ISBN 2858508186 In French.
Documenting an exhibition assembled largely from the Pompidou's extensive holdings of works by Goncharova (1881-1962) and Larionov (1881-1964), this catalogue illustrates nearly 50 paintings and a vast selection of gouaches, drawings and prints produced by the celebrated Russian avant-garde artists over the course of their careers in Moscow and Paris, including vibrant landscapes, still lifes and figure studies variously reflecting the influence of Post-Impressionism, Cubism, Futurism and Russian folk art as well as many of the costume and set designs the couple created for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes following their emigration to France during World War I. Augmented by detailed commentaries on the exhibited paintings, seven essays include discussions of such topics as the serial character of Goncharova's early work and its critical reception in Russia, the primitivist elements of Larionov's style, the artists' activities as illustrators in the 1910s and 20s, and the evolution of their oeuvres during their decades in France.
