Plate, ca. 1923
Russian Constructivist El Lissitzky spent much of his time in Germany in the early to mid-1920s. This earthenware charger of about 1923, made in Germany likely to El Lissitzky’s designs, features strong geometrical patterns and the red and black color contrasts favored by Constructivists and
members of the De Stijl movement, to which he was closely linked.
