The great tensome: from Repin to Malevich






This family course focuses on the prolific and revolutionary period in Russian art history spanning four decades between the 1890s and 1930s.

The artists discussed in the classroom include Kazimir Malevich, Wassily Kandinsky, Vladimir Tatlin, Mikhail Larionov, and Alexander Rodchenko.

Russian avant-garde transcended the local art scene to become an influential global force, with the movement’s legacy exhibited at Tate Modern (UK), Stedelijk Museum (The Netherlands), MoMA (USA), and many other museums of the world.


Natalya Sidorova graduated from Ilya Repin St. Petersburg State Academic Institute for Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture in 1996. Since 2004, Sidorova has worked as a Senior Research Associate in the Contemporary Art Department at the Tretyakov State Gallery.

Tatiana Bortnik is an art historian and drawing teacher for preschoolers and elementary school children. Since 2009 Bortnik has been a faculty member of Lulaki art school; in 2012 she joined the faculty of La Petite Ecole Bilingue school (UK).
