Portrait of Aleksandra Ekster

Rhythm and dynamic movement

Alexandra Alexandrovna Exter is a Russian-French painter that explored dynamic movement through the rhythmic quality of her color balance. She also helped with stage design for Aleksander Tairov at Kamerny Theater, she collaborated on Aelita, a science fiction film and she helped with the Soviet Pavilion’s International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts. Alexandra traversed times of civil war from the Soviet Union and sought creativity and originality through her paintings and artwork.
