This rare treatise on contemporary avant-garde art by Ehrenburg (1891-1967) is not only noteworthy for its typographical experiementation, but it defends Contructivism in early art („Oblozhka raboty Fernanda Lezhe“) and includes also a penetrating analysis of the „new architecture“ which Vladimir E. Tatlin and his work are seen to have generated. Among the artists the Russian critic considers are Léger, Lipchitz, Lissitzky, Picasso, Rodchenko, Van Doesburg and even from a Charlie Chaplin film. Very fine uncut copy.
