The facsimile is the exact size x mm as the original, on library paper of the same color as the newsprint original. They are both his "real" given name. His stylistic characteristics and experimentation with production techniques developed in the s and 30s have been an influence on graphic designers since. In addition to his exhibition designwork, Lissitzky revitalized book and periodical design, by introducing radical innovations in typography and photomontage, two fields in which he was an acknowledged master.

Demonstrating an early talent for drawinghe received art lessons from Yehuda Pen, a local Jewish artist, he was rejected by the Academy of Arts in St Petersburg, due to his Jewish faith, and instead trained from to as an architect at the Technische Hochschule in Darmstadt, Germany. The world will not die, but a revolutionary fourth-dimensional change will energize it continually through infinities of time and space. The shapes were developed in a 3-dimensional space, that often contained varying perspectives, which was a direct contrast to the ideas of suprematist theories which stressed the simplification of shapes and the use of 2D space only. Well, perhaps Lissitzky communicated this more economically and artistically!

In he produced one of his last works — a Soviet propaganda poster rallying the people to make more tanks for the fight against Nazi Germany. His technical background perhaps explains his career-long focus on "goal-oriented construction", and he remained convinced that the artist's role was to help bring about a new world, constructed in accordance with visionary ideas. Otherwise, it is an amazing article. In he worked on anti-Nazi posters and other war-related projects until his death in Moscow on 30 December. Lissitzky received his initial art training in Vitebsk now Vitsyebsk, Belarusa city that would play a major role in the development of the Russian avant-garde.

This is great stuff, particularly the selected works table. Works by El Lissitzky can be seen in some of the best art museums in Russia and elsewhere. And red organizes a settlement on the black square [49KB] and on the Black was established Red Clearly Here the large black square is a solid but moving base for the reassembled objects, which now are red and white, and organized like skyscrapers in a city.

The text beneath is again in sharp contrast to the picture. I wish I could operate the link checker to find any that I don't see since there are a lot of links in the table. He enrolled as a student of engineering and architecture at the Riga Polytechnical Institute [Rizhskii politekhnicheskii institut], temporarily quartered in Moscow, and received his diploma on 3 June with the degree of engineer-architect.

During his studies, in he traveled in Germany and also to France and Italy, but was forced to return to Russia during the summer ofafter the outbreak of World War I. Moscow: Exhibitions and Illustration Inbeing unable to renew his visa, he returned to Moscow and gave up painting to devote himself to applied art and propaganda designs.

In the autumn of Lissitzky became a professor at the state art school in Moscow, but he left for Berlin in December to establish cultural contact with German artists.

He created Suprematist designs for a two-year anniversary celebration of the Vitebsk Committee to Combat Unemployment, and he also designed a series of propaganda posters, the most famous of which is Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge — In his remaining years he brought innovation and change to typographyexhibition design, photomontageand book design.

Railing comments that Lissitzky must have carefully placed the words dynamically on the page after, and as part of, his suprematist construction. In fact, he made the very first abstract work with a political message.

He remained in Germany until the outbreak of World War I, when he was forced to return home through Switzerland and the Balkans, along with many of his countrymen, including other expatriate artists born in the former Russian Empire, such as Wassily Kandinsky and Marc Chagall.

Credits El Lissitzky El Lissitzky was a Russian born artist, designer, typographer, photographer and architect who designed many exhibitions and propaganda for the Soviet Union in the early 20th century.

Although often highly abstract and theoretical, Lissitzky's work was able speak to the prevailing political discourse of his native Russia, and then the nascent Soviet Union.

El Lissitzky

Biography An active figure in Russian avant-garde artthe versatile painter, designer and illustrator El Lissitzky, explored a number of abstract art movementsbefore focusing on design. With his frequent travels and contact with other artists, Lissitzky became a transformational figure, intermingling the innovative arts of Europe and Russia and advancing the exchange of experimental forms and ideas.

He created Soviet pavilions for a number of international expositions, and he collaborated with Aleksandr Rodchenko and other avant-garde artists on the remarkable propaganda magazine SSSR na stroyke —41; USSR in Construction.

Otherwise, it is an amazing article. In earlyhe helped found the publishing house Kultur-Lige, which became a leading force in the dissemination of Yiddish culture in Ukraine. Over the years, he taught in a variety of positions, schools, and artistic media, spreading and exchanging ideas.

In contrast, the red square is tilted dynamically, and the letter "A" is emphasized and repeated, smaller each time. I never heard of El Lissitzky until I came across this article. Lissitzky spent much of his childhood in the town of Vitebsk also Marc Chagall's hometownfollowed by a ten-year stay with his grandparents in Smolensk, near the present-day Belarusian border, where he spent his secondary school years.

His work greatly influenced the Bauhaus and constructivist movements, and he experimented with techniques and ideas ine 20th-century graphic design. Architectural Designs Among his many architectural ideas of the period, was his design for horizontal skyscrapers, known as Wolkenbugel, or "cloud-irons".

I doubt that Lissitzky had any chances of physically being present in Riga in - the city, close to the front line and having a high share of native Germans was on above-average security alert, and traditionally anti-semitic Courland laws on Jews were tighter than in Russia proper although not as bad as Finlandnot a safe place for a Jew in the middle of a war.

Removal has generally been met with positive responses by editors. A dictionary of architecture and landscape architecture. It seems that it was later reverted when someone was removing vandalism. Back in Moscow, Lissitzky attended the Polytechnic Institute of Riga, which had been evacuated to Moscow from Latvia, because of the war.The author of the artistic construction and album design is El Lissitzky.
