About This Item

This is the album with grotesque caricatures of wellknown European and Russian paintings; supplement to humoristic weekly serials Satirikon.
There are a lot of Russian writers and artists worked as a contributors: Arkadii Averchenko, Teffi, Sasha Chernyi, Don-Aminado, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Alexander Iakovlev, Leon Bakst, Boris Kustodiev, Ivan Bilibin, Boris Grigoriev, Sergei Sudeikin, Nikolai Remizov (Re-Mi), Aleksandr Iunger.
The most interesting caricatures in the edition are drawings by Re-Mi (Self-portrait by Dürer and Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci). Re-Mi is pseudonym of illustrator Nikolai Remisoff (1887-1975). He emigrated to Paris in 1920 and moved to USA in 1922. In 1939 he became designer and art director in Hollywood at United Artists and Universal. His most important works are Of mice and Men and Ocean's Eleven.
The edition contains earlier work by Alexander Iacovleff (1887-1938). He studied at the Imperial Academy of Arts, was a member of World of Arts group. At that time Iacovleff attempted to integrate Renaissance art with Primitivism, particularly the Russian Lubok. After the end of Great War he settled in Paris. He is best known by his portraits of Asian and African peoples that he prepared in his travelling with Citroën expedition.
Another contributor Alexander Iunger (1883- 1948) considered the father of Russian graphic feuilleton. He prepared impressive covers for one of Russian editions of Dracula by Bram Stoker.
