Comment This paper will consider Popova's engagement with textile design, focusing especially on the four years 1921-1924, which include the paintings that she was producing over this period, the theoretical context of her entry into design, as well as the actual designs that she executed for the First Textile Printing Factory (formerly the Tsindel factory) in Moscow between the summer of 1923 and her death in 1924. Particular attention will be paid to the relationship between the paintings and the designs, and the different ways in which the former informed the latter. Christina Lodder is Professorial Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. She specialises in the history and theory of twentieth-century Russian art and design, and related European developments. Her numerous publications include a large number of articles and several substantial books: Russian Constructivism (1983) and Constructive Strands in Russian Art (2005), as well as Constructing Modernity: The Art and Career of Naum Gabo (co-author with Martin Hammer, 2000), Gabo on Gabo: Texts and Interviews (co-editor with Martin Hammer, 2000), and Rethinking Malevich (co-editor with Charlotte Douglas, 2007). She has also been involved as an advisor for several exhibitions and was a member of the curatorial team for the exhibition Modernism at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (2006).
