A comprehensive monograph on the life and work of the Russian avant-garde artist Mikhail Larinov. Parton traces Larinov's artistic activity and development from his years in Russia, where he began as an Impressionist painter and later organised the Moscow Futurists, to his time in France, with his lifelong partner Natalia Goncharova, where he designed sets for the Ballets Russes and joined the School of Paris. Larinov's personal writings and manifestos are included, as well as contemporary reviews and interviews with colleagues.
