The primitivism

Another name of this direction is “the innocent art”. In the general case it means the direction in art which has the next characteristics: informal and extremely simple, clear, and immediacy of techniques and ways of self-expression. Such art is a freedom from the imposed images and associations and the childish point of view.

From this position we can perceive the art of Oceania or the American Indians art as a primitivism. The medieval murals, folklore painting and works of some talented artists can also be classified as an “innocent art”. The word “primitive” has a negative meaning in Russian language. It means something which is extremely simple and not important. But despite this, many Russian artists working in this style completed the collection of fine art’s masterpieces. We must name the masters of this direction: Russo, Generalich, Robertson, Pirosmanishvily, etc. Some techniques of the primitivism were used by such masters as Picasso, Klee, and Chagall.

If we speak about Russian primitivists, we must name Larionov, Goncharova, Malevich, and three creative groups: “The Donkey’s Tail”, “The Jack of Diamonds”, and “The Blue Rose”.
