Description - Modern Masterpieces from Moscow by Edward van Voolen

Moscow's State Tretyakov Gallery and A.A. Bakhrushin State Central Theatre Museum house the world-famous collections of Russian art and theatre design. This publication brings together for the first time a representative selection of works by Jewish artists from these two treasure troves. Some of the artists have great reputations, but most of them have until now remained obscure. "Modern Masterpieces from Moscow" covers the period from the birth of the Russian avant-garde around 1910 until the height of Stalinism around 1940. It explores the revival of Jewish culture and the position of those Jewish artists who contributed to the revolutionary Soviet art. Abstract works by El Lissitzky and Socialist-Realist paintings by Isaak Brodsky are presented, alongside other artists including Nathan Altmanm Ilya Chashnik, Robert Falk, Yevgeny Katsman, Alexander Labas, Solomon Nikritin, Isaak Rabinovich, Dacid Shterenberg and Alexander Tyshler.
