The poet Vladimir Mayakovsky by Alexander Rodchenko (1924)

This photograph, titled “The poet Vladimir Mayakovsky,” was taken by the artist Alexander Rodchenko in 1924. The black and white image features a man seated on a chair, looking directly into the camera with a serious expression. He is dressed formally in a three-piece suit with a tie and a handkerchief in the pocket of his jacket. The subject sits with his right leg crossed over his left, and his hands are placed on his thighs. The lighting casts shadows behind him, highlighting the contours of his bold presence. The portrait exudes a strong sense of character and appears to capture the essence of the man, who is none other than the poet Vladimir Mayakovsky.
