Suprematist foresight. Cosmos in decorations and graphics by Nadia Leger

Exhibition April 9 − September 1, 2021
The Moscow Kremlin Museum in the halls of the Armory is holding an exhibition “Suprematist foresight. Space in decorations and graphics by Nadia Leger ".

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.
