  1. Blue Rose
    (Голубая роза – Blaue Rose) was a Symbolist artist association in Moscow from 1906 to 1908. They emphasised color as a 'tonal' medium to construct rhythm in a painting and the elimination of shape and contour. Members included Anatolii Arapov, Petr Bromirsky, V. Drittenpreis, Nikolai Feofilaktov, Artur Fonvizen, Nikolai Krymov, Pavel Kuznetsov, Ivan Knabe, Nikolai Milioti, Vasilii Milioti, Aleksandr Matveev, Nikolai Ryabushinsky, Nikolai Sapunov, Martiros Saryan, Serge Sudeikin and Petr Utkin. Their style was inspired by the Russian Impressionist, Viktor Borisov-Musatov, the name of the group was used for their exhibition in 1906 and was derived from the poem Blue Flower by the poet Novalis.
    Vladimir Mayakovsky, the poet/critic said of the group in 1907 "The artists are in love with the music of colour and line." Wassily Kandinsky was an associate of the group, being greatly taken with their artistic viewpoint he contributed paintings to a few of their exhibitions in Moscow between 1906 to 1910.

    (publishing house) was founded in 1899 by philanthropist and translator S. A. Polyakov, poets Valery Bryusov and Jurgis Baltrušaitis. Konstantin Balmont was said to be responsible to its title. The Scorpion's initial agenda was two-fold: to meet the already well-developed demand for the 'decadent' brand of literature and to form its own readership, recipient already to the "new art" of Russian modernism

    Closely associated with Scorpion were painters of Mir iskusstva (Léon Bakst, Konstantin Somov) but also Victor Borisov-Musatov, Modest Durnov, Nikolai Feofilaktov and others.
