As the Bolsheviks were reformulating Russian society in the heady decades at the beginning of this century, a group of young artists were intent on radically altering the look and meaning of art. Popova, whose mature career spanned a brief 12 years, was an artistic equal to the better known Tatlin, Rodchenko, and Malevich. Strongly influenced by the French Cubists during a 1912 visit to Paris, she returned to Moscow to work in the new style, Constructivism, reflecting the changes wrought in Soviet thinking by the Russian Revolution. Little known due to the scarcity of her work in Western collections, Popova's reputation will be enhanced by this thorough and well-illustrated book. Recommended for art libraries.
