 Larionov was an artist of change: refusing to be identified with or bound to a particular movement, obsessed only with the process of creation, he preferred to set the cat amongst the pigeons – to deliberately introduce elements and visual systems to shake up the artistic status quo.

Overseen by the dynamic, rebellious and restless artistic spirit of the late great Mikhail Larionov (1881-1964), famous for setting in motion a number of movements and artistic trends, Pushkin House is the venue for an exhibition of paintings, generated as a current, British response to the inspiration of Russian avant-garde art.

Please note that part of the exhibition will be closed to the public from 2pm to 4pm on Sunday 23 November for a public event.
