[Abstract Composition]

c1915. Watercolour, signed verso, 25.2 x 16.8cm (paper). Slight cockling.

Olga Rozanova was a Russian Constructivist painter, who experimented with Cubism and Futurism before settling on her particular abstract style. She was among the first in Russia to advocate abstract art in an essay published in 1913. She illustrated several books of Futurist poetry, including those of her husband Alexei Kruchenykh. Rozanova also composed her own experimental sound poetry, and created embroidery and fabric designs for Malevich’s unpublished journal Supremus.
