Ivan Vasilievich Kliun
IVK Art, 1994 - Suprematism in art - 379 pages
"...Ivan Vasilievich Kliun...one of the most enigmatic representatives of 20th century Russian art." (John Bowlt, Ivan Vasilievich Kliun, exhibition catalog, Matignon Gallery, NY, 1983). The granddaughter & keeper of Kliun's estate, the internationally-recognized authority on his work, Kliunkova-Soloveichik, has compiled the first monograph on this powerful force in the Russian avant-garde movement. His theoretical contributions, magnificient creative vision & his place as one of the movement's senior statesmen are compellingly revealed in this book, published in the 50th anniversary of his death. Remarkable revelations about his close friendship with the younger KAZIMIR MALEVICH, Kliun's own writings about art, & the never-before-published documentary photographs & profuse illustrations of his work make this monograph, limited to only 5,000 copies, a rare & important addition to any 20th-century art library, scholarly or commercial & makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in this explosive moment in the history of Modern Art. IVK ART, 61 East 95th Street, #16, NY, NY 10128. (212) 534-6049. $140.00 plus $6.00 shipping & handling, NYS residents add 8 1/4% sales tax.
