Critical Response to Margot Lovejoy

Constructivists were part of the constructivism art movement which began in 1917 in Russia, around that time the Russian revolution was in full swing. Artists that were part of this movement included:

  • Tatlin
  • Rodchenko
  • Pevsner

Tatlin had created a portrait of a monument that was never built only designed, this was essentially a detailed version of a blueprint, it was reported that it would be taller than the Eiffel Tower. But the way it was structured was virtually impossible to build. The Bauhaus in Germany would exhibit the works of the constructivists to the general public; art produced in the Bauhaus was linked to pure art.
