Описание: In 2010 the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver director Adam Lerner did something unheard of in the museum world: he mounted a large exhibition of paintings without first knowing whether they were real or fakes. Painted in the Suprematist and Constructivist style of early twentiethcentury Russian avantgarde masters, the 172 canvases had been acquired by amateur collectors Ron and Roger Pollard from a mysterious seller in Germany they met on eBay, who claimed the paintings were found in an abandoned shipping container held in German customs since the 1980s. In From Russia with Doubt, Lerner skillfully weaves together the tale from the initial eBay find to his controversial decision to exhibit the collection, guiding readers through the looking glass into the Byzantine corridors of the art world and beyond describing the owners' quest to authenticate and appraise the would-be masterpieces.
Описание: This book is devoted to the complex relationship between Russian art and the East - be it the Russian East or the Far East - with special focus on the radical artists who shaped the development of modern art a century ago. The rituals of Siberian shamans, the ancient funerary sculptures from the steppes seen as a crystallized presence of archaic and everlasting forms of worship, Chinese popular prints, Japanese engravings, Theosophic and Anthroposophic theories, and Indian philosophy are but some of the elements that inspired the aesthetic and theoretical pursuits of the new generation of Russian artists and writers just before the October 1917 Revolution. This book examines figures such as Leon Bakst, Alexandre Benois, Pavel Filonov, Natalia Goncharova, Wassily Kandinsky, Mikhail Larionov, and Kazimir Malevich, who were deeply aware of the significance of the East for their art, and contributed to launching a rich debate that left a deep and permanent mark on their artistic praxis.

Описание: Beginning around 1910, vanguard artists demanded that true art go beyond the intellectual and transform daily life. This title highlights the work of six influential European artists who took this idea into the wider world, where it merged enthusiastically with demands in the industrial marketplace, nascent mass media, and urban popular culture.
Описание: The Russian Avant-Garde movement is a common term denoting a most remarkable art phenomenon that flourished in Russia from 1890 to 1930 which covered art, literature, cinema, sculpture, architecture and political propaganda. Work from this period is easily recognizable thanks to bright colors, geometric shapes and bold lettering. This lavishly illustrated exhibition catalogue features six major works from renowned Russian Avant-Garde artists: Kazimir Malevich, Vladimir Tatlin, Ivan Kliun, Ilja Chashnik, El Lissitzky and Lyubov Popova. These works will be accompanied by a selection of original documents, objects, manuscripts and photographs from the art historian and independent scholar Andr i Nakov's private collection which will contribute to highlight the importance of this critical current in the formulation of Modern Art. The book will also refer to the contribution in the late 1950s by Canadian diplomats posted in Moscow and their role in assisting George Costakis, collector of Russian art whose collection became the most representative body of Modern Russian Avant-Garde art anywhere. Numerous publications have been devoted to the non-objective Russian Avant-Garde in recent years, but there is still much to be explored with regard to the movement and its beginnings.

Описание: Avant-Garde Modernism dominated the Russian architectural profession throughout the 1920s. Though severely limited by the disruptions of revolutions and civil war, the Avant-Garde has left behind it a body of theoretical work and a number of important completed projects that exerted a profound influence on pioneers of the Modern movement such as Walter Gropius and Hannes Meyer. Too often reduced to a single, homogenous movement, Soviet Modernism is here presented in all its considerable diversity; with over 300 rarely seen contemporary photographs, and documents by leading Modernists such as Tatlin, Melkikov and Golosov. In a new essay, Catherine Cooke examines the pre-revolutionary origins of the Avant-Garde and highlights the numerous fissures and tensions that characterized the movement during its decade of greatest influence.
