Lazar Khidekel and Suprematism

Bob Aufuldish

For decades the work of Lazar Khidekel has been undeservedly overlooked by galleries and museums—primarily because the Russian avant-garde movement was interrupted midstream and forced underground by the Soviet state. This book provides the perfect introduction to Khidekel’s decades-long career and coincides with a recently renewed fascination with Suprematism and the development of 20th-century abstraction.
