Naum Gabo

Naum Gabo was associated with the Constructivists at the time of the Russian Revolution of 1917. They saw an artistic renewal as part of the revolution and embraced new scientific theories and industrial materials. He studied Medicine, Natural Science and Engineering at Munich University. At that time he had the opportunity to hear Heinrich Wolfflin's lectures on art history which, it is said, prompted the discovery that he had interest in both science and art.His works can be roughly divided into three different categories: surface, line and moving sculptures.
