The Russian Avant-Garde movement which flowered so briefly before it was cruelly snuffed out has been well-documented through those of its exponents, such as Kandinsky, El-Lissitzky, and Malevich, who managed to escape to the West, as well as through the works of Alexander Rodchenko and Vladimir Tatlin, the founder of Constructivism, both of whom survived in the Soviet Union by carefully refraining from practising their art. The magnificent array of avant-gardist works in Russian museums, in a plethora of styles, media, and contexts, are all reproduced in beautiful color for the first time. There are paintings, sculptures, book illustrations, sketches, and prints, evidence of the multiple talents so cruelly suppressed. The works are mostly from the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow and the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg.
