At this point, let's remember some photographical ostranenie examples taken by Alexander Rodchenko
(1891-1956) from the birds-eye view, worms-eye view with vertical perspective and foreshortening with strong diagonal lines: The Building on Miasnitskaia Street (1925), Pine Trees in Pushkino (1927), On the telephone (1928).
The sale also included the most important painting by Rodchenko
to be offered at auction since 1988.
As obras revelam citacoes de artistas vanguardistas russos Malevich e Rodchenko
, assim como o pintor norte-americano Donald Judd (Martins, 2003).
The collection on display at the Hungarian National Gallery between late January and May will include paintings by Kazimir Malevich, Wassily Kandinsky, Alexander Rodchenko
, El Lissitzky, Natalia Goncharova and those of her husband, Mikhail Larionov.
Works of Bakst, Golovin, Kustodiev, Dobuzhinsky, Korovin, Juon, Roerich, Tatlin, Exter, Rodchenko
, Popova and other outstanding artists are presented.
The full colour plates and diagrams enhance the text creating a rich and detailed introduction to The Russian avant-garde of the 1920's and 1930s, featuring figures such as: Mayakovsky, Kandinsky, Malevich, Alexander Rodchenko
, Meyerhold and many others.
While the influence and gigantic talent of the post-futurist and non-Jewish Alexander Rodchenko
is everywhere and it is gratifying to be able to view the tensile photographs of Georgy Petrusov and Boris Ignatovich with their visual complexities and Hitchkockian angles, the show's focus is diffuse, and I miss the careful historical development the Jewish Museum has come to be known for.
