    LITERATURE
    V. Leniashin (ed.), Soviet Art, 1920s-1930s, Russian Museum, Leningrad, Moscow, 1988, no.26 (another version illustrated, p.39).

    Composition aux arbres is one of a series of landscapes that Goncharova executed en pochoir in the early 1920s. The series was developed directly from an earlier group in gouache and watercolour. In both series we see Goncharova marrying the typical devices associated with pre-war Analytical Cubism, such as multiple viewpoints and the flattening of picture space, with a more polished brushwork and controlled composition. This synthesis of technique was in accordance with the so-called 'return to order' espoused by the post-war Cubist painters who sought a return to control, rationality and clarity in the art of painting.

    In 1973, this composition was included as one of four works, two landscapes and two abstract peacocks, which were included with a limited edition of 20 deluxe copies of Mary Chamot's monograph on the artist.
