About the artist
She moved her base to Paris between 1912 and 1913, learning from well known cubist artists Jean Metzinger and Henri Le Fauconnier. Around this time, she embraced cubism and upon her return to Russia in 1914, she began showcasing her work and mingling with Russian avant-garde circles. Her artistic evolution led her from Cubism to total abstraction, a shift evident in her ‘Painterly Architectonics’ series (1916-20).
Identifying herself as an 'artist-engineer', Popova, one of the trailblazers of Russian abstract art in the early 20th century, saw abstract 'constructivist' art as a metaphor for modern industrial city construction. In the early 1920s, she expanded her creative pursuits into textile and theater design.
