Abstract. Conceptual foundations of the well-known sculptor Alexander Archipenko’s art (1887—1964) have been considered in the article. A breadth of the sculptor’s novelties and theoretical thoughts have been analyzed. The attention has been concentrated on the ideological-aesthetic content which is the imperative in the search of the visual image. The valuable equivalent of Alexander Archipenko’s inner-motivated plastic arts has been elucidated. The unity of psychological and semantic resources in the change of the ideological paradigms of shaping has been underlined. The main features of the author’s methodology of the sculptor were the bases of the formation of the XX-th century Avant-gardism.

Keywords: Alexander Archipenko, sculptor, conception of the plastic arts, ideological-aesthetic content, visual image, Avant-garde.
