Common dislike of conservative traditions of the Russian paintings united members of this association. It was one of the early trends of Russian avant-garde. This exhibition ends the project launched in Monaco in 2004 and continued in the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. According to critics, it was the highlight of the season.
