Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the lives and destinies of two individuals, who are virtual reflections of the same mirror image, the artist and theoretician Pavel Nikolaevich Filonov (1883-1941) and Nikolai Nikolaevich Glebov-Putilovskii (1883-1948), who was a professional revolutionary and the husband of Evdokiia Nikolaevna, i.e. two individuals who held each other in very high regard and who were both victims of an inexorable and cruel expulsion and emigration. Actually, the problems of conservation and cataloguing Filonov's oeuvre had been raised long before by Glebov himself, and in very dramatic circumstances. Glebov's encouragement and support became especially important for Filonov after the campaign against his one-man exhibition, even if Glebov, himself in big trouble, was relentlessly being removed from the cultural and political scene. Both men became internal exiles in their homeland, prophets in the wilderness, joining the vast domestic emigration of Russia's artistic and intellectual luminaries.

Keywords: cruel emigration; cruel expulsion; Nikolai Nikolaevich Glebov-Putilovskii; Pavel Nikolaevich Filonov; Russia's artistic luminaries
