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.
Edited by Magdalena Dabrowski, Leah Dickerman and Peter Galassi.

Foreword by Glenn D. Lowry.
His photography, painting, drawing, graphic design and sculpture. What a kick [butt] artist. I like the photography and sculpture best.
He was a contemporary
of Picasso, but he lived in Russia. His art was controlled by
the State. His fame rose with the State, and then declined when
the State changed.
I was interested in reading his biography and there are several
essays by different people. I found them hard to read and not
helpful and sequential. One essay was on Photography, one on Painting,
one on each aspect of his output. This separation did not work
for me. I did not complete the essays, because, they were too
hard to read. I liked the one written by his daughter.
