This was the second and final showing of an unprecedented exhibition including more than 450 works by 40 artists, including Chagall, Exter, and Malevich. The development of Russian avant-garde art was presented in chronological order. In addition to paintings and sculptures, works on view included an abstract environment and a full-scale stage set with costumes; clothes, dinnerware, architectural models, and furniture design; and books, collages, and other representations. Running continuously in the exhibition area was a 20-minute audiovisual presentation. The exhibit was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Most works were on loan from collections in Europe and North and South America.
