EL LISSITZKY. Erste Russische Kunstausstellung Berlin. 32 pp. Illustrated with 52 black-&-white reproductions of paintings. 8vo., bound in publisher's wrappers illustrated by El Lissitzky, preserved in a new grey cloth folding box. Berlin: Galerie Van Diemen, 1922.
An unusually fine copy of the catalogue for this landmark exhibition of Russian art, which had the added distinction of having its cover designed by Lissitzky. The exhibition featured some 700 works of art, many of them avant-garde, including Malevich, Rozanova, Stepanova, Popova, Rodchenko, Lissitzky, Tatlin and Gabo. A rare catalogue, with this version not listed on OCLC, but two copies of the version from the Stedelijk, the only other venue, are.
