Lebedev, V. V. Still Life with a Saw. 1920

Notes:
Still Life with a Saw In this collage, Lebedev cleverly places the saw against a white background, creating the illusion that the saw is both hovering and about to cut wood. The piece is brilliantly effective because it employs simple means to create a sense of impending action. (00504)
