Avant-Garde Art Pays Tribute to 'Greek Fool'

For the last 10 years, shows of avant-garde art have become a regular feature of Moscow's cultural life. But the exhibit that opened last week in the New Tretyakov Gallery is not just another insightful look into the special creative reality of Russian art born of the tense and torn spirit of the early 20th century. It is a long-delayed tribute to the person who discovered and preserved these treasures, bringing them international appreciation against the odds of the late Soviet era when this art was ignored, forgotten and forbidden. ""Russian Avant-Garde from the Collection of George Costakis"" unfolds before the viewer as a concise encyclopedia of Russian art from Vasily Kandinsky, Constantin Malevich, Marc Chagall to Mikhail Larionov, Arstarkh Lentulov, David Burliuk, Lyudmila Popova, Alexander Rodchenko and Alexandra Ekster, among others.
