Black and white illustrations, often full page. 182 pages. "Frances Benjamin Johnston was a prominent studio photographer and photojournalist at the turn of the twentieth century. She presented three bodies of work at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1900: a collection of photographs by American women, a series of photographs of students in the Washington, D.C., school system, and a series of photographs of students from the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute. These exhibits all promoted the nationalistic agenda of progress at the Paris Exposition, illustrating American advancement in art, education, and society." ; "Johnston was a significant-and arresting-figure in early twentieth-century photography.Johnston produced a good deal of the usual society portraiture of the time-including a nude photograph of a debutante that prompted the girl's outraged father to file a lawsuit-but she was also an important photodocumentarian. Students of African American history can reexamine life at Hampton Institute (now Hampton University) or Tuskegee using hundreds of photographs made by Johnston at the turn of the last century.through Johnston's work we can see Admiral Dewey on the deck of the USS Olympia, the Roosevelt children playing with their pet pony at the White House, and the gardens of Edith Wharton's famous villa near Paris. Johnston's major project on early vernacular architecture of the American South preserves scores of buildings that no longer exist except on her film." ; photos of the famous include Thordore ROosevelt, Susan B Anthony, Mark Twain, William McKinley, Joel Chandler Harris, Admiral Dewey, Booker T. Washington, Jacob Riis, Alexander Graham Bell, Jane E Clark, Andrew Carnegie, George Washington Carver, John Phillip Sousa, Helen Hay, John Milton Hay, General LEonard Ward, Julia Marlowe, Richard Hovey, Margaret James, Phoebe Apperson Hearst, Albert Beveridge, Edith Wharton, DIfford Pinchot, Jane Cowl, and Ryan Tillman 137735

Gravi?u?ry na Dereve, Kupreianov, Nikolai Nikalaevich
8 Kupreianov, Nikolai Nikalaevich Gravi?u?ry na Dereve
Leningrad :, Khudozhnik RSFSR, 1980, Oversize Hardcover Near Fine No Jacket 
18 plates and a ten page pamphlet. Text in Cyrillic. In a beige cloth covered case with sunning and discoloration to spine, a small tear at bottom of spine, and penciled price on back. Small creases to edge of pamphlet. Prints are in Fine condition and are 26 cm x 29 cm. Number 63 of a limited edition of 500. Kupreianov was a Soviet graphic artist born in 1894, in the Polish People’s Republic; died July 29, 1933, in Moscow. "In 1910, Kupreianov studied in St. Petersburg with A. P. Ostroumova-Lebedeva and in the workshops of D. N. Kardovskii and K. S. Petrov-Vodkin. He was a member of the Society of Easel Painters and the Four Arts group. From 1922 to 1930 he was a professor at the Moscow Vkhutemas-Vkhutein, and from 1930 to 1933 he taught at the Moscow Institute of Printing. Most of Kupreianov’s early works are wood engravings, such as Armored Cars (1918) and The Cruiser Aurora (1923), imbued with revolutionary romanticism. His drawings of the 1920’s and 1930’s on industrial subjects reflect a keen perception and a sense of the rhythm and joy of labor. Emotional immediacy and an expressive sketch are combined with a precise rendering of objects in the series Railroad Tracks (india ink, 1927, Tret’iakov Gallery) and Fishing Season (watercolor, 1930-31, Tret’iakov Gallery and the A. S. Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow). Kupreianov’s landscapes and interiors are marked by rich tonal variations, giving them a strikingly picturesque quality, and by a subtle mood. Kupreianov did the illustrations for Lunacharskii’s Bear’s Wedding (1924), Mayakovsky’s Fairy Tale About Petia, the Fatty, and About Sima, Who Is Much Thinner (1925), Gorky’s The Artamonovs, Mother, and The Town of Okurov (1931), and Fadeev’s The Rout (1932)." from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979). 131892
