Las Mornings
In Focus

LAS In Focus launched in February, 2015 and provides a look at the most talked-about exhibitions on the London gallery scene. It’s the insider’s guide to the art on view in London. Each term we select the museum or gallery shows we think people will be talking about, and lecturers will discuss the background to the art and point out highlights not to be missed when seeing the exhibition itself.

The lectures begin at 10am, and will finish by noon; coffee and light refreshments are provided, and this lecture series takes place at either the Berkeley Hotel or the Bulgari Hotel, London.

Three Revolutions: A History of Russian Art

Tuesday 28th February

Three Revolutions: A History of Russian Art

We will begin the morning’s lecture with a look at some of the artists who broke away from the art establishment in Russia in the 1860’s (including Ilya Repin and Ivan Kramskoy), followed by a look at the truly revolutionary artists at the beginning of the 20th Century: Malevich, Kandinsky and Tatlin. This will provide background to the Royal Academy’s forthcoming exhibition: Revolution:Russian Art 1917-1932, and consider a third group of artists, the ones whose work Lenin and Stalin considered appropriate for their new revolutionary world.
