This third issue of Open Windows opens with a detailed study of La Piazza Navona, Rome by Gaspar van Wittel, a spectacular urban view of 1699 in the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection. In addition, and in conjunction with the new display of the Museum’s Russian avant-garde paintings, this issue includes two articles: the first on recent discoveries concerning Ivan Kliun’s Suprematist painting Composition, which came to light following a study of the work by the Museum’s Conservation Department; and the second on Prison by Tatiana Glebova, a painting that was attributed to her teacher Pavel Filonov until 1993.
