Alexander Rodchenko was the most important and versatile member of the Constructivist movement, the progressive artists who created a new art after the Russian Revolution of 1917. This comprehensive book, rich in illustrations and relying extensively on new research from Russia, accompanied the first major retrospective exhibition in the United States of Rodchenko's work at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1998. In 1921 Rodchenko left behind his innovative work in abstract painting and sculpture, committing himself to applied art in the service of revolutionary ideals. Included in this first full and coherent overview are not only Rodchenko's painting and sculpture but also his diverse experiments and lasting achievements in photocollage, photography, and design of all kinds, from books, posters, magazines, and advertising, to furniture.
