Originally named Liubov Sergeyevna Eding, she was born in Moscow and studied in Paris until the beginning of World War I. Popova met Vladimir Tatlin, father of Soviet Constructivism, when she returned to Russia and his influence was very evident in her paintings from that time period. Her works consisted of overlapping lines and geometric shapes in order to create depth of space. Before her death from scarlet fever t the age of thirty-five, Popova worked in the theatre, designing sets and costumes and also created textile patterns for the First State Textile Factory in Moscow.
