The Archipenko Sculpture Catalogue Raisonne

As art history aficionados may know, Alexander Archipenko was an influential American-Ukrainian artist notable for being one of the first to adapt Cubist techniques to three-dimensional forms, and he became particularly well-known for his small-scale sculptures. In celebration of this avant-garde artist's legacy, the Archipenko Foundation has created this digital catalogue raisonne of Archipenko's work. Released in 2018, the Catalogue Raisonne is an ongoing effort that is free to view, but email registration is required. As of this write-up, the Archipenko Sculpture Catalogue Raisonne consists of 1,800 records for individual works in different versions, sizes, and media, that document 440 sculpture series. Detailed instructions for searching the catalogue are provided along with examples. While thus far the catalogue only includes Archipenko's works of sculpture, the project plans to add his paintings and works on paper as well, with the ultimate goal of cataloguing his entire oeuvre. In the Life and Work section, an illustrated chronology details Archipenko's life and career, from his birth in Kiev in 1887 and beyond his death in New York in 1964, listing posthumous exhibitions through 2015.
