Malevich, Kandinsky and revolutionary porcelain

Russian masterpieces of art and white gold from 1917 to 1927
22nd April 2017 – 8th October 2017

Russian porcelain of the period from 1917 to 1927 reflects the dramatic changes in Russian life at the time. Wholly unique, thematically contemporary decorations are typical. Having emerged in the atmosphere of the Russian Revolution, this white gold of the 1920s was used for more than just propaganda and didactic purposes. In a period dominated by industrial design, many outstanding artists turned to this as the art form most likely to reach the broad masses. Technically superb craftsmen modelled their creations after designs by the artists. This combination yielded amazingly beautiful, never-before-seen porcelain pieces that were often only made as one-offs or in small series.

In this unique special exhibition, over 300 select porcelain pieces from the finest private collection are displayed publicly for the very first time. On display are creations from 64 avant-garde artists such as Kazimir Malevich, Vasily Kandinsky, and Nikolai Suetin, to name some of the most prominent ones. The exhibit is rounded out with drawings and designs from these renowned masters as well as David Yakerson.

Let yourself be inspired by a breathtakingly creative era of Russia’s history, with something new and surprising at every turn.
