The collection of Vladimir Tsarenkov, London, is one of the largest private collections of avant-garde art from Russia and the Soviet Union and features outstanding works by its protagonists.

It comprises paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the period of the October Revolution of 1917 and ensuing decades. Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein has received a selection of sixty-three works of the highest quality on permanent loan and is now exhibiting them to the public for the first time.

On show are pre-eminent works by the "Jack of Diamonds" group (Moscow, 1910–17) and post-revolutionary art until the mid-1930s. Alongside the big names such as Kazimir Malevich, Ilya Chashnik, Alexander Archipenko, Alexej Jawlensky, Alexandra Exter, Mikhail Larionov, Natalia Goncharova, Vladimir Baranov-Rossiné or Ivan Kliun, the collection also includes artists yet to be discovered in the West, for example Boris Grigoriev, Aleksandr Deyneka, David Jakerson or Mikhail Matyushin.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with a contribution by Aleksandra Shatskikh.
