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.
