Bow Down: Natalia Sidlina on Natalia Goncharova

BY Jennifer Higgie in Podcasts | 01 AUG 20

Natalia Sidlina, Tate Curator of International Art and a specialist in Russian emigre art, nominates Natalia Goncharova – a modernist pioneer of painting, performance, theatre and costume design who changed the landscape of avant-garde art in early 20th century Russia. Despite being a star in her day, her work has all but faded from the public eye – until early 2019, when her first-ever retrospective was staged at Tate Modern.
