About

Tate Modern presents the UK’s first ever retrospective of the Russian avant-garde artist Natalia Goncharova.

Celebrated during her lifetime as a leading modernist artist, Goncharova was a pioneering and radical figure.

Throughout her varied career, she challenged the limits of artistic, social and gender conventions, from parading through the streets of Moscow displaying futurist body art and scandalising newspapers of the day, to creating internationally acclaimed designs for fashion and the theatre.

The exhibition presents more than 170 international loans which rarely travel.

Highlights include early paintings, such as Peasants Gathering Apples 1911, formerly owned by the Morozov family, one of great art collectors of the early 20th century; and her scandalous paintings of nudes, the first public display of which led to her trial for obscenity.
