Mikhail Larionov’s Barbers series (1907–09) reflects his fascination with the art of urban folklore, which seemed to him refreshingly free of any schooling. Lightly parodying the urban signboard, this genre painting humorises a scene in a barber’s shop. Larionov simplifies the subject and primitivises its artistic structure, incarnating the concept of Everythingism. One of the many avant-garde ideas of the early twentieth century, Everythingism or vsyochestvo proposed the free usage of various subjects and language stylistics in a work of art.
