Alexander Rodchenko (1891-1956)
Fine Art, Portraiture
Biography: Alexander Rodchenko was a revolutionary artist, both politically and aesthetically. As a decorator, furniture and theatre designer, printer, painter, sculptor, and photographer, he worked with a wide variety of media. He was also an art theorist and educator and began teaching at the VKhUTEMAS (Higher State Art-Technical Studios) in Moscow in 1920. Best known as a Russian Constructivist artist, in 1921 he co-wrote the Constructivists' manifesto. Among other things, it advocated the use of machine-made materials such as wire, glass, and sheet metal in the creation of socially useful art for a society in the midst of revolution.
Inspired by his work in illustration and commercial designs, Rodchenko turned to photography in 1924. He wanted to incorporate his own imagery into the photomontages that he had begun working on the previous year. From that point on, photomontage became one of his favoured techniques. An ardent experimenter, Rodchenko regarded the camera as a highly flexible drawing instrument. His use of foreshortening and non-vertical camera angles became trademark techniques, and he advised aspiring photographers to "take several different photographs of an object, from different places and positions as though looking it over." (J. Paul Getty Museum)
Vladimir Mayakovsky(1893-1930)
Vladimir Mayakovsky was among the foremost representatives for the poetic poetry futurism of early 20-th century Tsarist Russia and the Soviet Union.
Mayakovsky was rejected as a volunteer at the beginning of WWI, and during 1915 - 1917 worked at the Petrograd Military Automobile School as a draftsman. At the onset of the Russian Revolution, Mayakovsky was in Smolny, Petrograd. There he was to witness the October Revolution The October Revolution was the second phase of the Russian Revolution, the first having been instigated by the events around the February Revolution. It was led by Vladimir Lenin and based upon the ideas of Karl Marx, and marked the first officially communist revolution of the twentieth century.
On November 7, 1917, Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin led his leftist revolutionaries in a nearly bloodless uprising against the ineffective Kerensky Provisional Government (Russia was still using the Julian Calendar at the time, so period references show an October 25 date). Later official accounts of the revolution from the Soviet Union would depict the events in October as being far more dramatic than they actually had been. He started reciting poems such as Left March! For the Red Marines: 1918 at naval theatres, with sailors as an audience.
Agitprop poster of Mayakovsky. After moving back to Moscow, Mayakovsky worked for the Russian State Telegraph Agency (ROSTA) creating Ч both graphic and text Ч satirical Agitprop. Agitprop is short for department for Agitation and Propaganda, part of the Central and regional committees of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. The department was later renamed to Ideological Department In 1919, he published his first collection of poems Collected Works 1909-1919 . In the cultural climate of the young Soviet Union, his popularity grew rapidly. During 1922-1928, Mayakovsky was a prominent member of the Left Art Front and went on to defined his work as 'Communist futurism'.
As one of the few writers who were allowed to travel freely, his voyages to Latvia, Britain, Germany, the United States, Mexico and Cuba influenced works like My Discovery of America in 1925. He also travelled extensively throughout the Soviet Union.
On a lecture tour in the United States, Mayakovsky met Elli Jones who later gave birth to his daughter, which Mayakovsky only got to know in 1929, when they met in the south of France, as the relationship was kept secret. In the late 1920s, Mayakovsky fell in love with Tatiana Yakovleva and to her he dedicated the poem A Letter to Tatiana Yakovleva (ѕисьмо “ать€не яковлевой, 1928) The relevance of Mayakovsky cannot be limited to Soviet poetry. While over years, he was considered the Soviet poet par excellence, he also changed the perceptions of poetry in wider 20th Century culture. His political activism as a propagandistic agitator was rarely understood, sometimes disfavoured by contemporaries and also by close friends like Boris Pasternak a Russian poet and writer. Near the end of the 1920s, Mayakovsky became increasingly disillusioned with Bolshevism and propaganda; his satirical play The bedbug (клоп, 1929), dealing with the soviet philistinism and bureaucratise shows this development.
On the evening of April 4, 1930, Mayakovsky shot himself. An unfinished poem in his suicide note read:
The love boat has crashed against the everyday. You and I, we are quits, and there is no point in listing mutual pains, sorrows, and hurts.
