A Tragedy.

Kronfeld, Susan (illus.)

(Philadelphia): Philadelpia College of Art, 1972. Quarto. (18)pp. One of eleven copies. Inscribed by the artist, Susan Kronfeld, to Stuart Schimmel, who served on the Grolier Club council and whose personal collections and public curatorial positions allowed him to continually present exhibits to the New York community. Kronfeld's eight color lithographs appear opposite Mayakovsky's verses, isolating them just as their desperate and lonesome content suggests. Mayakovsky, though renowned in his own time for his poetry, often felt the resonance of solitary existence, even as he became an outspoken proponent of Bolshevism and found himself in league with Boris Pasternak, Lilya Brik, and Sergei Eisenstein. Bound accordion-fold with black and gold edges. Save slight expected rubbing to edges, fine and housed in near-fine clamshell box. Item #29091

Price: $650.00
