IRSA has just published a book by Andréi Nakov concerning the painter Kazimir Malewicz. It is Nakov’s third book on the Russian Avantgarde, after „Kandinsky, the Enigma of the First Abstract Painting” and „Tatlin’s Reliefs: from Cubism to Abstraction”, published by IRSA.
On this occasion we offer a set of these three excellent books and selected issues of “Artibus et Historiae” at discounted prices.
The aim of this book is to question a certain number of anti-modernist visual and cultural prejudices. Advancing ever further in his interpretation of the artist’s œuvre, Andréi Nakov uncovers hidden layers of a creative production that shows itself to be increasingly important to our comprehension of 20th-century modernity.
The book by Stefania Krzysztofowicz-Kozakowska is dedicated to one of the most popular Polish academic painters in late 19th century and his monumental canvas Pieśń wieczorna [Evening song] painted in 1893.
