The exhibition is dedicated to the work of the famous artist of the 20th century, a prominent representative of the Parisian art school - Nadia Leger (1904-1982). In the works of this talented painter and graphic artist, who was also engaged in monumental art and design, many iconic artistic trends of the 20th century were fused and reworked - from Cubism, Suprematism, Purism to Socialist Realism.
In 1970, Nadia Leger created a series of Suprematist jewelry based on her paintings and graphic works in gold, platinum and diamonds. In 1976, she donated thirty-seven precious "space" items - brooches, rings, bracelet watches - to the Soviet state. In 1980, they were transferred to the Moscow Kremlin Museums, where they are kept to the present day. At the exhibition, an outstanding complex of avant-garde products will be shown in full for the first time, which will allow you to get acquainted with the little-known facet of Nadia Leger's talent.
The exposition will also feature her portrait by Fernand Leger, Suprematist compositions from the State Museum of Fine Arts named after A.S. Pushkin and a drawing by Pablo Picasso from the Collection of the Karisalov family, in which Yuri Gagarin is depicted as a flying dove.
