This book documents "the most comprehensive survey of 1910-1930 Russian avant-garde art ever shown in this country ... [giving] us a rare glimpse of the precious few masterpieces - and more numerous sketches and fragments - that are the West's all too meager tangible legacy from one of the most seminal and prolific periods in modern art."
Covering painting, sculpture, prints, drawings, books, photographs, costumes, and examples of industrial architectural, and theatrical design, it is "a significant addition to the small number of books on the Russian avant-garde. It contains 19 authoritative and enlightening essays; short sections (good for reference) on each artist ... with biographies, bibliographies; a detailed chronology of the period; and a general bibliography. The whole text is extremely useful. The works themselves ... are astonishingly relevant to the 1980s."
