Air Man Space by Lyubov Popova is a beautiful artwork in the style of cubism.
Lyubov Sergeyevna Popova (24 April 1889 – 25 May 1924) was a Russian avant-garde artist (Cubist, Suprematist and Constructivist), painter and designer.
Popova was born in Ivanovskoe, near Moscow, to the wealthy sergei maximovich popov family, a very successful textile merchant and a keen patron of the arts, and Lyubov Vasilievna Zubova, who came from a very civilized family. Lyubov Sergeyevna had two brothers and a sister: Sergei was the eldest, then Lyubov, Pavel and Olga.
Pavel became a philosopher and guardian of his sister’s artistic heritage. She grew up with a strong interest in art, especially Italian Renaissance painting. At eleven years old she officially began art classes at home, she enrolled for the first time at the Women’s High School of Yaltinskia and then at the High School of Arseneva in Moscow.
By the age of 18 she was studying with Stanislav Zhukovsky, and in 1908 she entered the private studios of Konstantin Yuon and Ivan Dudin. From 1912 to 1913, she began to attend the studios of the cubist painters Henri Le Fauconnier and Jean Metzinger.
Popova traveled widely to research and learn from different styles of painting, but it was the ancient Russian icons, the paintings of Yioto and the works of the Italian painters of the 15th and 16th centuries that interested her the most.
