After visiting Picasso in his Paris studio, Tatlin returned to Russia and began producing his Relief Constructions (1913-17), a series of sculptures made from an assortment of junk and other "found" materials, in an imitation of similar works by his Spanish host. These Relief Constructions culminated in Monument to the Third International (an unfinished wooden prototype), exhibited in 1920, which became a symbol of the Constructivist movement.
