Stepanova with a cigarette by Alexander Rodchenko (1924)

The photograph entitled “Stepanova with a cigarette” was taken by the artist Alexander Rodchenko in the year 1924. This black and white photograph captures the portrait of a woman, presumably Stepanova, as she is portrayed with a casual and relaxed demeanor, holding a cigarette. She is seated, with her arm resting behind her head, and gazes directly at the camera with a thoughtful or contemplative expression. Her attire seems informal, with a light blouse that appears somewhat creased, suggesting a moment of ease or a break within a domestic or work setting. The composition of the photo includes textures in the background, possibly indicating a simple or modest environment, which contrasts with the woman’s direct and engaging presence.
