Description

Untitled Abstraction, watercolor, 9 5/8 x 7 1/4 in (24.4 x 18.4 cm), signed lower left, ARTIST NOTATION: Georgii Stenberg is most well-known for the posters he designed with his brother Vladimir from the mid-1920s until Georgii's death in 1933. Before devoting their efforts to poster design both brothers practiced in a range of media, initially active as Constructivist sculptors, subsequently as theater designers, architects, and draftspeople. Their design work covered the gamut from clothing, including women's shoes, to rail carriages. Some examples of their sculpture were spidery and spindly structures, such as the reconstruction (1973-74) of KPS 11: Construction of a spatial apparatus no. 11 (1919-20) in steel, glass, paint and plaster on wood in the National Gallery of Australia Canberra. However, the arenas in which they excelled were theater, costume and graphic designs, particularly the graphic design of film posters, encouraged by the surging interest in movies in Russia and the government's sanctioning of graphic design and the cinema.
