Non-Objective Composition, c.1920. Lyubov Sergeyevna Popova was a Russian avant-garde artist, painter and designer. In 1916 she joined the Supremus group with Malevich, the founder of Suprematism. The creation of a new kind of painting was part of the revolutionary urge of the Russian avant-garde to remake the world. However there was a tension between those who, like Malevich saw art as a spiritual quest, & others who responded to the need for the artist to create a new physical world.
George Grosz (July 26, 1893 – July 6, 1959) was a German artist known especially for his savagely caricatural drawings of Berlin life in the 1920s. He was a prominent member of the Berlin Dada and New Objectivity group during the Weimar Republic before he emigrated to the United States in 1933.
