Estimate: $500 - $700
MIKHAIL TARKHANOV (RUSSIAN 1888-1962), Abstract Composition, 1929, starch with pigment on paper, 10 1/2 x 14 in (27 x 36 cm), signed dated on verso
Mikhail Tarkhanov (1888-1962) was a Russian avant-garde graphic artist known for his abstract, water-based textured compositions. He graduated from the Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts and Industry in 1915, later enrolling at VKhUTEMAS, where he studied under Vasili Kandinsky and Vladimir Favorsky. From 1932 until his death, the exhibition of abstract art was banned, so he secretly pursued his abstract work while working officially for various Soviet institutions. He was able to exhibit his beautiful, unique compositions only a handful of times from 1919 to 1931, alongside artists such as Natan Altman, El Lissitzky, Kazimir Malevich, and Alexander Rodchenko. Much of his oeuvre has remained unseen until the present. Tarkhanov`s works are included in the permanent collections of the Tretyakov Gallery, the Russian Museum, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, and at the Getty Center. This particular work was exibited at Tarkhanov's first retrospective in New York, as well as one of the first exhibitions of the artist's work since 1932, in New York City, Shapiro Auctions Gallery, July 28th to August 5th, 2016.
