Masterpiece of Special Collection (NAMU): Ekster, Aleksandra, 'Bridge at Sèvres'
The permanent exhibition at the National Art Museum includes Aleksandra Ekster’s Cubo-Futurist landscape “Bridge at Sèvres.” It was painted during a dynamic time in Ekster’s life, when she was actively collaborating with Picasso, Braque, Guillaume Apollinaire, Max Jacob and with the Italian Futurists Filippo Marinetti, Giovanni Papini and Ardengo Soffici (with whom she shared a studio in 1914). In 1952, this painting was slated for destruction as too formalist and unrealistic, but survived partly because curators designated this a work by an unknown artist.
