Regular price $13.00 Sale

This poster is a print of Runner in the City, a 1926 photograph by El Lissitzky. Available in 12 x 12 and 10 x 10 inches.

To create this photo — a model for a frieze at an urban sports club — Lissitzky combined shots of the runner, the track and hurdle, and the Times Square multiple-exposure into one print. Then he sliced it into strips.

Our Runner in the City is printed in USA on museum-quality, archival, acid-free matte paper — 10.3 mil, 192 grams per square inch — with an opacity of 94% and ISO brightness of 104%.

El Lissitzky

Lissitzky was a member of the Russian avant-garde — an artist, designer, photographer, architect — and a founder of suprematism, an art movement using basic geometric forms and few colors. He infused his work with his politics; he believed art should change the world. His work influenced the Bauhaus movement and 20th-century graphic design.
