TATLIN

By Larissa Alekseevna Zhadova

New York: Rizzoli, 1988. Hardcover. VG/VG. Black cloth with bw illustrated glossy dustjacket with red title. 533 pp., 76 color and 350 bw plates. Includes selections of Tatlin's art works, manifestos, letters, and writings./ "Title of the Hungarian original: Tatlin, published by Corvina Kiadó, Budapest, 1984"--Title page verso./ "This book is based on a Russian manuscript"--Title page verso./ Includes indexes./ Includes bibliographical references (pages 514-517). edited by Larissa Alekseevna Zhadova ; [English translation by Paul Filotas ... et al. ; translation revised by Colin Wright]. Though probably best known for his leadership in the Russian Constructivist movement, Vladimir Tatlin's contributions to modern art are profound. To prepare this book, which was ten years in the making, editor Zhadova drew together original writings and documentation from various Soviet institutions. The resulting book, while dense in compilation and translated commentary, is an invaluable first English-language edition for serious art historical research. Though collections are better served by the broader context of John Milner's Vladimir Tatlin and the Russian Avant-garde ( LJ 9/1/83), Tatlin is an essential acquisition for specialized art libraries. - Paula A.

Kazimir Malevich : the climax of disclosure

Kazimir Malevich : the climax of disclosure

By Rainer Crone; David Moos

Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press, 1991. Hardcover. New. Black cloth with white spine lettering, black glossy color illustrated dustjacket. viii, 230 pp., 155 illustrations, including 50 in color. Kasimir Malevich's (1878-1935) sudden and startling realization of a nonrepresentational way of painting, which he called Suprematism, stands as a seminal moment in twentieth-century art. Rainer Crone and David Moos trace the artist's development from his beginnings in the Ukraine to his involvement with Futurist circles in Moscow through to the late 1920s and beyond. They convincingly demonstrate that Malevich's late representational painting, still widely misunderstood, solidifies his extraordinarily inventive stance. Against the historical background of distinctly Russian progressive cultural and scientific movements, the authors define affinities between Malevich's work and other nonpolitical revolutions: relativity and quantum theory in physics the work of Roman Jakobson and the "Prague School" in linguistics and the exploration of language in the writings of the poet Velimir Khlebnikov. They situate the artist within the fundamental epistemological shift from nineteenth-century objectivity to an all-pervasive modernist subjectivity, relying upon Malevich's contribution to illustrate the ways cultural production is mediated through various modes of transmission. Rainer Crone holds the Chair for Twentieth Century Art at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitä ;t, Munich, and is adjunct professor of art history at Columbia University. David Moos is a doctoral candidate in art history at Columbia University. Contents as follows: Introduction: This book ... and the end of experience -- 1. The question of information -- 2. Artistic positions: a critical survey -- 3. Origins of a painter -- 4. Cubo-futurism: interchanges -- 5. Passages through poetry -- 6. The edge of innovation -- 7. Subjectivity in temporality -- 8. Late sensations and the new reality -- 9. The free imaginary variation -- Exhibitions.

Abram Manevich

By Pensler, Alan and Mimi Ginsberg

2011. Paperback. New in shrinkwrap.. Glossy red and color-illustrated wraps with white lettering. 181 pp. Mainly color illustrations. Abraham Manievich is the first Russian-language comprehensive publication to chronicle the life of this artist. This is a long awaited publication dedicated to paintings of Abraham Manievich featuring 130 color reproductions of Manievich's paintings along with a number of photographs and documents from family archives. The painter Abraham Manievich was a prominent figure in the artistic worlds of early twentieth-century Europe and America. Born in the small Russian town of Mstislavl (today's Ukraine) in 1881, his artistic training in Kiev and Munich led to early success. Until now there has been no comprehensive study of the involved symbolism that underlies his major paintings, works that the authors believe require examination within the context of Jewish Futurism. This discussion of the attributes and ideas characteristic of Jewish Futurist painting, especially as it pertains to Manievich and his contemporaries, such as Chagall, Natan Altman, and Vladimir Baranoff-Rossiné, will further the understanding of the contribution of Jewish artists to the artistic and literary avant-garde of the time. -Amazon.
