Abstract

Likely published in anticipation of a 1967 volume of primary documents relating to the Russian artist El Lissitzky, Lucia Moholy discusses the artist's biography, career, influences, major works, reception, and relation to the Bauhaus. Drawing on her involvement in the fields of publishing and printing, she also introduces his then little-known books and graphic art, as well as his conception of the “Proun.” Although not stating it explicitly, much of her knowledge draws on having known Lissitzky personally in the 1920s and his writings from that period. The text stands as one of the earliest discussions of Lissitzky outside of the Russian language.
