Natan Altman: Evreiskaya grafika [Jewish Graphic Art], Berlin: Petropolis, 1923
text in Russian by Max Osborn, first edition, one of 250 copies, 10 full-page lithographed plates within copper-coloured borders.

Osborn's text considers primarily Altman's pre-revolutionary output in the context of contemporary Jewish art: 'The clever adaptation of essential features of folk art, understood in its formal aspect, and its skilful transformation into a new art not only makes Altman's graphic works interesting from the national point of view, but also establishes him as an artist of distinction in the general European context'.
48.5 by 37cm, 19¼ by 14½ in.
