1918 Russian Illustrated Poem Book Alexandr Blok Twelve Annenkov Art For Sale
You are offerding on a Russian xa. 1918 illustrated poetry book "THE TWELVE" by Alexander Blok, illustrated by Yury Annenkov.
Lavishly printed Russian book, richly illustrated with B&W lithographs - a famous poem by Alexander Blok announcing the Bolshevik revolution. The long poem exhibits "mood-creating sounds, polyphonic rhythms, and harsh, slangy language". It describes the march of twelve Bolshevik soldiers (likened to the Twelve Apostles of Christ) through the streets of revolutionary Petrograd, with a fierce winter blizzard raging around them. "The Twelve" alienated Blok from many of his intellectual readers (who accused him of lack of artistry), while the Bolsheviks scorned his former mysticism and aesceticism. Blok considered this poem to be his best work"
