Lyubov Popova, Painterly Architectonic, 1917. Oil on canvas. Via MoMa.

This is one of a series of works Popova created between 1915 and 1919 in response to Kazimir Malevich’s Suprematist paintings. Her definition of painting as a constructive process also recalls her engagement with the materially based abstraction of fellow Russian Vladimir Tatlin, in whose teaching studio she worked.
