In March 2017, my Rozanova post reached less than 30❤. My last Rozanova post has reached over 100❤. So pleased to increase the audience for Olga through my humble little Insta page.
1.OLGA'S ABSTRACTION WAS BASED ON COLOUR - "....Figurative art was born of a love for the object. Non-objective art was born for a love of colour. This is painting above all" wrote Olga in her article 'Cubism, Futurism and Suprematism' in 1916-17. 🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴
2.THE OBJECT RE-APPEARS FOR OLGA & SUPREMATISM - Can't colours by themselves be unconsciously linked to an object of desire? Following her painting, Olga creates a fabric design (an object) with the same pattern based on this painting (Scroll). Perhaps to publicise the new abstract art form to a wider audience. We should remember that Suprematism abstraction was born at the exhibition of craft, for the Verbovka Collective in September 1915. That exhibition was full of applied household objects adorned with Suprematist patterns. 🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴
3.SUPREMATISTS WERE IN A BATTLE WITH TATLIN AND HIS FOLLOWERS - Rozanova moved to Moscow in 1916 and wrote to Kruchhenyk: "I got a letter from Kluinkov (Ivan Kliun, in Malevich's circle). Flattering and alarming. They are afraid of the group with Bruni, Tatlin and the others will be significantly larger and have more success with the public than the suprematists. He's appealing to me. He say's the suprematists should work closely and harmoniously, etc. and calls me a 'rare artist', etc."
Then Olga joined Malevich and the Supremus Society. This non-objective painting was completed around this time

OLGA ROZANOVA /Ольга Владимировна Розанова
Cards. Four Aces. Simultaneous Representation /1913-14 /Oil on canvas
Olga was an artist who constructed her way. Her way. Always! But she was certainly integrating a range of influences in her painting here, including: ■Cubism - Strong diagonal divider. The forms and cards are analysed, then reconstructed
■Futurism - Aces in dynamic fluid movement
■Decoration - The blue triangle centrepiece, likely signifying the unturned card
■Subversive - Cards as a street activity and game of chance - the thrill of the reveal, with everything at stake.
■Colour - Using strong primary colours with black & white
■Rozanova was close to being the first abstract painter. Joined the Supremus Society with Malevich and quickly developed her own colourful style of abstraction.
■Olga was a transrational (Zaum) poet
■Key member of the Union of Youth
■Worked in the Fine Arts section of Narkompros after the Revolution.
Photo taken - March 2013 in the Russian Museum of St Petersburg. It was worth searching my hard drive. I also have a copy of this painting next to my workspace.
Olga was also a fiery writer in defence of modern art against the politicaly liberal art establishment. In 1913, she wrote:
▶"Everyone who follows the art scene is familiar with A. Benois's articles on cubism: ◽◽◽ 'Cubism or Ridiculism?' is a shameful stain on Russian criticism.
And if such a well-known art critic displays complete ignorance of questions of a specialized nature, then what can we expect from the newspaper judges who earn their bread and butter by looking for truths to please the mob's bigoted opinions!"◽◽◽◽◽◽◽
▶Alexandre Benois served as an art critic for Rech, newspaper of the Cadet Party (the Liberal Bourgeoisie). He was a key tastemaker. Olga here is directly confronting his ignorance! ◽◽◽◽◽
▶From 'The Bases of the New Creation and the Reasons Why It Is Misunderstood' (for Union of Youth /Soyuz Molodezhi)'.

Henri Matisse / Jazz Series selection
1/ The Toboggan / 1943
▶2/ The Wolf / 1946
▶▶3/ Monsieur Loyal / 1946
My last Matisse post! A personal historic one. Three years ago on this very day, Malevich Squared attended the final night of the Matisse Cut-Outs exhibition. And this is what my younger self wrote:
The subversive process of the original painted cut-outs still amaze with their vibrant colour, and texture. 'The Toboggan' appears to move with the simple combination of painted paper, scissors and glue initially applied to canvas. ⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪
The general feeling of energy you get, means you can miss the hidden connection with the contemporary society, in which Matisse lived. For example, the Jazz series assembled from 1943-46, includes 'The Wolf', a reference to Adolf Hitler. DeGaulle is represented by Monsieur Loyal. It does look like DeGaulle.
Matisse signed the originals after the war. 'The Wolf' in 1946 and 'Monsieur Loyal' in June 1946. Matisse you let me down!!! I demand more courage from my artists.
My personal favourite is: 'The Toboggan' from 1943, painted earlier for the Jazz series. The compostion pinpoints the moments between the tobogganist toppling out of control and a final resting place. Like 1943 itself. The moment that captures anxiety of the uncertain outcome. Anxiety between tragedy or relief. And that involves an element of choice for the Tobogganist in how they internalise this external situation. There is also an incongruence in the snow being purple. Urmmmmmm. The familar made unfamilar. With hindsight, everything familiar must have been unfamiliar in 1943.
Then to revisit the #malevich exhibition upstairs. One simply must visit family!! Including paste-on innovator #olgarozanova!

Henri Matisse / 'Forms' from Jazz Series of 1947 juxtaposed with the Female Torso /
@ Matisse and His Studio
Matisse's 'Cut-Outs' were foreshadowed by Olga Rozanova's collage 'Paste-Ons' of 1915. But also we should remember the influence on the art of Matisse in Moscow on the Russian Avant-Garde. His paintings were available for public viewings every Sunday at Shchukin's Palace in the 1910s.
Do you agree Matisse used this object from his studio collection for this cut-out? The curator certainly connects them. ⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕
Overall, I 💙 Matisse. His vibrant colour palette. His abstraction. His use of line. And in the Jazz series its simplicity of the wheel chair bound artist continued, through his assistants, he could create. ⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕
The room of Nudes and Objects at the exhibition certainly points uncomfortably to Henri's obsession with the FEMALE nude, rather than the still life object. Let us not forget Matisse was a man of his time. And not forget the female form in the 1940s car, the Coca-Cola bottle and advertising that surrounded him. He got off lighty. He never had Google, Facebook and the online world.
Matisse was a man of time and his environment. His art could partially transcend that. If there was no sex (on television) in the USSR in the 1960s, there certainly was in West in the studio and in the gallery. Before and after. From the male gaze. His point of view. The late John Berger pinpointed this in Ways of Seeing. And the many women that stood up to be heard, be seen and be an artist. ⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕
We should not forget that the early Twentieth Century French art world provide a higher place than the nude. But the limits were clear for women. Chanel as fashion designer. Sonia Delaunay too. Natalia Goncharova as designer for the Ballets Russe. The female as artist and painter had to struggle. ⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕

infamous revolutionary piece "beat the whites with the red wedge" by el lissitzky, 1919. like liubov popova and other russian artists whose lives were swept up in the communist revolution, el lissitzky believed the artist must serve society through activism and goal-oriented creation, ("das zielbewußte Schaffen"). I feel like this composition was inspired by Popova's painterly architectonic (1917) from the previous post. what do you think? #ellissitzky

painterly architectonic, 1917. by liubov popova, russian avante garde and suprematist painter powerhouse. she was a fervent communist who saw the purpose of art as service to society.

suprematist composition (1917) by olga rozanova - another prominent russian futurist painter, who managed to accomplish an impressive amount for someone who died tragically of diphteria at just 31 (1886-1917). she is considered the foremother of abstract expressionism, and was a member of kazimir malevich's famed suprematist artist group.
