Article

The Russian artist and architect Vladimir Tatlin was one of the central figures in the Russian avant-garde in the years surrounding the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. The progenitor and major theorist of Russian Constructivism, he was instrumental in developing the machine aesthetic that became a central component of modernist architecture and design. He is best known for his unrealized, but visionary design for a giant tower, the Monument to the Third International, which exemplified constructivist theory and practice.
