Description
Alexandra Exter (Russian, 1882–1949) was a costume designer as well as a painter. By 1924, she had opened a studio in Kiev that, for a short time, became core to the city’s avant-garde scene. And she had endured civil war, with many of her paintings lost to fire—effectively reducing the role of painting in her legacy. In 1924, Exter fled to Paris, where she continued her work in designs for the stage. Her work turned more toward the figural, and through the 1930s she produced lesser-known works in book design and illustration. Exter’s decorative compositions in this boxed notecard set come from this period.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
Decorative Composition with Female Figure in River Landscape, 1930s
Decorative Composition with Standing Female in Landscape with Fountains, c. 1936
Decorative Composition with Nude in Fountain Landscape, c. 1936
Decorative Composition with Fountain in a Landscape, c. 1936
