„Gustavs Klucis. Complete catalogue of works in the Latvian National Museum of Art” in two volumes is published by the Latvian National Museum of Art in collaboration with the Publishers Neputns. However, the richly illustrated edition in Latvian and English is not just a catalogue of a collection – it is a comprehensive study of original materials which will open new prospects for researchers of the creative work of Gustavs Klucis.
The creative life of the artist of Latvian origin, Gustavs Klucis, took place in 1920s and 30s Moscow, where he became one of the most brilliant representatives and driving forces of the Russian Avantgarde. After his tragic death during the Stalin terror his name, though, was literally erased from the history of art, and it took several decades before works by Klucis were accepted again in exhibition halls.
