60 Great Queen Street
This talk will coincide with the major, single woman focused exhibition currently showing at Tate Modern on Natalia Goncharova. Both Goncharova and her partner Mikhail Larionov were members of leading artists’ groups across Russia and Europe, and their work was highly influential on early 20th century modernism. The technical practice of these two Russian artists was the subject of a broad ranging, in depth project at the Museum Ludwig, Cologne undertaken in 2017 by Art Analysis & Research. This talk will explore their use of materials and techniques to create the bold and colourful images that defined Russian art of their era.
Dr. Jilleen Nadolny led the Goncharova/ Larionov project at Art Analysis & Research and is a historian of art technology. She obtained a double MA in art history and art conservation at New York University before completing a PhD at the Courtauld Institute, London. Jilleen has published widely on the contextual history of art technology.
