The exhibition «Circling the Square: Avant-garde Porcelain from Revolutionary Russia» jointly organized by the State Hermitage and the Courtauld Institute of Art in London is opened at the Hermitage Rooms, Somerset House from November 18, 2004 – July 31, 2005.

The event offers a broad survey of remarkable avant-garde ceramics produced in the world-famous Lomonosov Porcelain Factory during the post-revolutionary years from 1918 to the 1930’s. Visitors have got a rare opportunity to view the achievements of a group of radical avant-garde artists – Futurists, Cubists and especially the abstract Suprematist painters in the circle of Kazimir Malevich – within the wider context of Russian revolutionary porcelain. «Circling the Square» features about 300 exhibits, including porcelain items and design drawings by Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin, Wassily Kandinsky, Nikolai Suetin and others.
