TAIE. Eesti kunsti ajakiri. (Art.The Estonian art magazine)
Tallinn: Päevaleht, 1929. Quarto 22x29 cm., wrappers bound in cloth, Nos. 1-4/5 (all published). Cover design by Gunther Reindorff. One of the most important interwar art journals, Taie continued to introduce the latest art experiments in Estonia as well as the more traditional work to Estonian readers. It was truly international in scope, with a broader outreach than previous journals which emphasized Estonian work almost exclusively. It also explored traditional Estonian crafts and folk art and visual heritage as well as Western European art history. Many of the artists contributed essays and statements in addition to presenting their work. There is a very fine survey of the Latvian avant-garde and modernism; Western Europe primarily is represented by France, both traditional and contemporary. Estonian contemporary architecture is also featured along with building developments in Finland. The journal is well illustrated. Especially interesting as a document of the continuing Estonian Constructivism which persisted up to 1940, unlike its neighbors. This example with the original cover of the first issue (all the other numbers had exactly the same cover). Two library holdings found worldwide. (Princeton. British Museum). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Michael Fagan Fine Art & Rare Books [Newton, MA, U.S.A.]
