Aleksandra Aleksandrovna Ekster (Russian: Александра Александровна Экстер, Ukrainian: Олександра Олександрівна Екстер; 18 January 1882 – 17 March 1949), also known as Alexandra Exter, was a Russian painter (Cubo-Futurist, Suprematist, Constructivist) and designer of international stature who divided her life between Kiev, St. Petersburg, Moscow, Vienna, and Paris.
A beautifully produced monograph on Exter, with dozens of high-resolution colour plates. Unfortunately, many of the paintings reproduced are fakes, and the ultimate purpose of this book was likely to legitimise them. Publisher's boards. PLEASE NOTE the text is in RUSSIAN and GERMAN.
Book condition: as new. DJ condition: as new. Beautiful condition.
