Product Description
Russian avant-garde books made between 1910 and 1934 reflect a vivid and tumultuous period in that nation's history that had ramifications for art, society, and politics. The early books, with their variously sized pages of coarse paper, illustrations entwined with printed, hand-written, and stamped texts, and provocative covers, were intended to shock academic conventions and bourgeois sensibilities. After the 1917 Revolution, books appeared with optimistic designs and photomontage meant to reach the masses and symbolize a rational, machine-led future. Later books showcased modern Soviet architecture and industry in the service of the government's agenda. Major artists adopted the book format during these two decades. They include Natalia Goncharova, El Lissitzky, Kazimir Malevich, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Olga Rozanova, the Stenberg brothers, Varvara Stepanova, and others. These artists often collaborated with poets, who created their own transrational language to accompany the imaginative illustrations. Three major artistic movements, Futurism, Suprematism, and Constructivism, that developed during this period in painting and sculpture also found their echo in the book format. This publication accompanied an exhibition of Russian avant-garde books at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. All of the books in the exhibition and this publication are part of a gift to the Museum from The Judith Rothschild Foundation.
Edited by Deborah Wye and Margit Rowell. Essays by Jared Ash, Gerald Janecek, Nina Gurianova, Margit Rowell and Deborah Wye.

Synopsis
Product Description
Review
"...a welcome addition on this subject!....Sharp expertly conveys the complexity of Goncharova's work and that of her dialogue with her sources...She successfully addresses the contemporary binary view of the "civilized" West and "barbarian" Russia...Russian Modernism between East and West is an important publication that not only redresses the lack of a current scholarly English monograph on Goncharova, but also advances considerably our understanding of the Russian avant-garde."
Cheryl Kramer, Women's Art Journal

"A complex and erudite book, providing extensive primary material...The physical qualities of presentation and formal presentation of the text, notes, bibliography, index, and the copius illustrations are exemplary, and the book is a substantial contribution to scholarship on the Russian avant-garde."
Alison Hilton, Slavic Review

Product Description
This book reconstructs the efforts of avant-garde artists, primarily Natal'ia Goncharova and her Muscovite colleagues, to reclaim Russia's 'Eastern' cultural heritage. Before the First World War, art addressed a crisis in self-representation that was a consequence of Russia's dual cultural legacies, Asian and European. This text represents Goncharova's leading role in this project, both as a spokesperson and a painter. The animated and often polarizing debates concerning the cultural identity of contemporary art were often preceded by Goncharova's practices that react to a critical tradition that, for at least a decade, had accused the radical 'left' Muscovite artists of failing to create a national tradition.

Amazons of the Avant Garde
Synopsis
Product Description
From Library Journal
This catalog accompanies an upcoming traveling exhibition, originating at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, that will feature six women painters of the early 20th-century Russian avant-garde: Alexandra Exter, Natalia Goncharova, Liubov Popova, Olga Rozanova, Varvara Stepanova, and Nadezhda Udaltsova. Organized by the curators of the exhibition, the catalog discusses these women, their painting, and their work in other art forms, including theater, textile design, and writing. The book features biographies of each woman in addition to essays that focus on the issue of gender in the arts of turn-of-the-century Russia. What results is a well-documented, well-illustrated book with color plates that includes a chronology of each artist and a collection of translated primary documents (artists! correspondence, extracts from diaries, and contemporary exhibition catalogs). A valuable resource for the study of women artists and the avant-garde in Russia; highly recommended for academic libraries and specialized art collections."Eric Linderman, Ida Rupp P.L., Port Clinton, OH

From Booklist
No serious overviews of modern art neglect the Russian avant-garde, but the group's women artists are rarely accorded in-depth study. To redress this imbalance, the Guggenheim Museum fashioned a traveling exhibition about six "Amazons" of the movement: Alexandra Exter, Natalia Goncharova, Liubov Popova, Olga Rozanova, Varvara Stepanova, and Nadezhda Udaltsova, an important undertaking handsomely documented by Russian art expert Bowlt, Guggenheim curator Drutt, and their contributors. Their volume's reproductions, many never before published in the West, make it invaluable, but the essays, both biographical and topical (analyzing, for instance, the status of women artists in Russia), establish a vivid cultural context, while writings by the artists bring their voices into the mix. The synergy among the six is palpable, but each took a distinctive approach to bridging the divide between the figurative and the abstract. Gifted, sophisticated, and, as Charlotte Douglas writes, "vital and direct, hardworking, competitive, and uncompromising," the artists also spanned the shift from imperial Russia to the Soviet state, an upheaval mirrored in their energetic and searching creations.
