Overview
-

A collection of 16 essays on the artist's painting and works for the theatre between 1910 and 1924. The essays explore the colour theories that gave rise to her abstract painting and the basic laws of structure that gave order to her Cubist, Simultaneist, Non-Objective painting and her stage and costume design. Contemporary accounts of her three plays, Famira Kifared, Salome, and Romeo and Juliet are included together with extracts from Alexander Tairov's, Notes of a Director (1921). The book closes with a detailed and illustrated Chronology of Exter's exhibitions and paintings.
