Created in the wake of Russian Revolution of 1917, which overthrew the nation’s imperial government in favor of rule by the people, El Lissitzky’s abstract composition demonstrates the artist’s desire to apply groundbreaking utopian aspirations to art making. The word “Proun” is an acronym signifying, in Russian, “Project for the Affirmation of the New.” This work, part of a portfolio of “Proun” lithographs, affirms the artist’s dedication to a non-objective art evocative of new methods of understanding materiality, space, and the creative process itself.
