New in our collection this extremely rare mixed media (ink, watercolor and gouache) from one of the most important Russian female constructivists Liubov Popova (1889-1924):
Costume sketch for the play “Zemlya dybom” (Earth in Turmoil): Эскизы костюмов к спектаклю “Земля дымом”
This sketch (35×25 cm) is made in 1923, one year before her tragic death. Popova designed both the stage set and costumes for Sergei Tretyakov’s, The Earth in Turmoil, produced by Vsevolod Meyerhold. As far as we know our work is the only known costume sketch for this play. The work is in very good condition, mounted and framed.
