Birth: Dec. 22, 1889
Death: Dec. 12, 1970

Russian painter, graphic artist, sculptor and designer of Ukrainian birth. He studied painting at the School of Art in Odessa (19017), at the same time attending classes in sculpture. In 19089 he made a series of pointillist paintings. He visited Vienna and Munich in 1910 before going to Paris, where he worked at Vasil'yeva's Free Russian Academy until 1912, producing paintings on Jewish themes and studying Cubism. In 1912 he went to St Petersburg, where he painted a number of Cubist portraits, for example of the poet Anna Akhmatova. His Cubist work makes much use of faceting and transparent planes. From 1918 to 1921 he taught at the Department of Visual Arts of Narkompros in Petrograd, but he was criticized for his attempts to identify Futurism with the art of the proletariat. Al'tman became well known as the designer of post-Revolutionary mass parades and monuments, for example the celebration of the first anniversary of the Revolution on 7 Nov 1918, which employed abstract geometric forms on huge panels. He also published an album of sketches of Lenin in the Kremlin.
