At the heart of this pioneering study – the result of exhaustive comparative research in Russian, European and American collections – is an illustrated catalogue which provides detailed descriptions of each work in the context of the artist’s career and the broader artistic developments of the age. The condition, provenance, and previous location of the works are also detailed.
The catalogue is introduced by three essays: The Russian Avant-Garde, the Hungarian Avant-Garde, and the history of the collecting of Russian Avant-Garde art. The volume concludes with artists’ biographies, bibliographical information, a glossary and index.
A catalogue of 59 works, written by two of the most eminent scholars in the field.
