    Description

    ARISTARKH VASILEVICH LENTULOV (Russian, 1882-1943)
    Cubist Cityscape
    Oil on canvas
    37-1/4 x 50-1/2 inches (94.6 x 128.3 cm)

    The son of a priest, Lentulov was one of the founders of the Russian avant-garde group the Jack of Diamonds. Lentulov attended several Russian art schools before moving to Paris in 1910 in order to train at Le Fauconnier and La Palette Academy. Both of these academies were well patronized by Russian artists of the avant-garde. It was during this time in Paris that Lentulov was exposed to the working theories of Fauvism and Cubism by such masters as Metzinger and Léger. After returning to Moscow, Lentulov exhibited with the Jack of Diamonds group and pioneered what would be known as Russian Futurism. This cityscape blends the distilation of form central to Cubism with the extreme palette of the Fauves, resulting in a style that is characteristically Lentulov's own.

    СЫН СВЯЩЕННИКА, ЛЕНТУЛОВ, БЫЛ ОДНИМ ИЗ ОСНОВАТЕЛЕЙ РУССКОЙ АВАНГАРДИСТСКОЙ ГРУППЫ "БУБНОВЫЙ ВАЛЕТ". ЛЕНТУЛОВ ПРОУЧИЛСЯ В НЕСКОЛЬКИХ РУССКИХ ХУДОЖЕСТВЕННЫХ ШКОЛАХ, ПОКА НЕ ПЕРЕЕХАЛ В ПАРИЖ В 1910 ГОДУ С ЦЕЛЬЮ ПРОЙТИ ОБУЧЕНИЕ В АКАДЕМИЯХ «ЛЕ Fauconnier» И «La Palette». ОБЕ ЭТИ АКАДЕМИИ БЫЛИ ОЧЕНЬ ПОПУЛЯРНЫ СРЕДИ РУССКИХ ХУДОЖНИКОВ-АВАНГАРДИСТОВ. ИМЕННО ТОГДА, В ПАРИЖЕ, ТАКИЕ МАСТЕРА, КАК МЕТЦЕНЖЕ И ЛЕЖЕ, ПОЗНАКОМИЛИ ЛЕНТУЛОВА С ТЕОРИЕЙ ФОВИЗМА И КУБИЗМА. ВЕРНУВШИСЬ В МОСКВУ, ЛЕНТУЛОВ ВЫСТАВЛЯЛ СВОИ РАБОТЫ ВМЕСТЕ С ДРУГИМИ ХУДОЖНИКАМИ ИЗ ГРУППЫ "БУБНОВЫЙ ВАЛЕТ". ОН СТАЛ ОДНИМ ИЗ ЗАЧИНАТЕЛЕЙ ТЕЧЕНИЯ, КОТОРОЕ ПОЗЖЕ ПОЛУЧИЛО НАЗВАНИЕ РУССКИЙ ФУТУРИЗМ. ЭТОТ ГОРОДСКОЙ ПЕЙЗАЖ СОВМЕЩАЕТ В СЕБЕ ЧИСТОТУ ФОРМ, ПРИСУЩУЮ КУБИЗМУ, С МНОГОЦВЕТЬЕМ КРАСОК, ИДУЩИМ ОТ ФОВИЗМА. РЕЗУЛЬТАТОМ ЭТОГО СМЕШЕНИЯ СТАЛ СОБСТВЕННЫЙ НЕПОДРАЖАЕМЫЙ ЛЕНТУЛОВСКИЙ СТИЛЬ.
