    Udaltsova made her artistic debut with the Jack of Diamonds exhibition of 1914. Having studied in various Russian studios, her formal training took place at the Académie de la Palette in Paris under the guidance of Metzinger and Fauconnier. There she learned the theories of the still-young Cubist movement directly from two of its great masters. Despite her association with several different groups and movements, Udaltsova was primarily a Cubist artist. This painting of 1915 was done the year that Udaltsova joined the Suprematist movement. Her Cubist study of guitars also incorporates the Suprematist theory of geometric form as the primary building blocks of art. Udaltsova has fractured the objects along the lines of Suprematism and deconstructed them to their most basic elements of square and circle, reducing the guitars to their most primitive state.
