Natalia Goncharova

Tate Modern, London

NOW CLOSED

Religious paintings, nudes and public displays of body art brought Goncharova to the forefront of Moscow’s avant-garde in the 1910s – and scandalised half of Russia in the process. This first UK survey looks at her impact on Futurism, and also takes in her fashion design and sets for the Ballets Russes. Find out more from the Tate’s website.
