Description for the presentation 2013-2014 in the National Museum of Modern Art

Yakulov was singled out by Larionov and Goncharova for the constructivist quality of his theatre sets, and produced several designs for Moscow cafés. He joined the Imagist movement in around 1920. Providing an alternative to the Russian and Italian Futurisms, Imagism focused on the dynamic energy of the image without abandoning all figurative references. In Sulky, Yakulov condenses all the internal tension of a movement captured in the rhythmic mechanism of its moving parts.
