A richly illustrated book exploring the oeuvre of Alexander Rodchenko
A leading representative of the Russian avant-garde, Alexander Rodchenko (1891– 1956) revolutionized the world of graphic art, design and photography.
This book, which accompanied a show at the House of Photography in Moscow, explores the full force of this innovator and the influence he exerted on fellow artists as much as on the men of letters, directors and intellectuals.
The book features work including the photomontages he created for Vladimir Mayakovsky’s poem Pro Eto (About That), covers designed for the magazine Novy LEF (New LEF) as well as cinema posters and book illustrations. Also included are contributions by Olga Sviblova, the director of the House of Photography / Multimedia Art Museum of Moscow; by the grandson of the artist and leading scholar of his work Alexander Lavrentiev, in addition to writings and testimonies by Rodchenko himself and his daughter Varvara.
