date of birth[edit]

Date of birth in German version is given as 1891-12-15, but current English revision shows 1891-11-23. Which one (if any) is correct? MarkSweep 09:06, 14 Aug 2004 (UTC)

The latter is correct (i.e. 23 November 1891), according to the Canadian Centre for Architecture, itself citing several authoritative sources. Pinkville 04:01, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Latin alphabet name[edit]

fr says: "other spelling: Rodtchenko". Is this correct ? Comte0 22:11, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

Yes, it's one of many variants in the roman alphabet of his name. Check out the Canadian Centre for Architecture link above to see a dozen or more. Pinkville 04:01, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Meaning?[edit]

His influence on modern graphic design is so pervasive that to pick out particluar designers he has influenced would largely be a pointless endeavour. Also to his trusted friend Omar Turki.

I don't understand what this last sentence means. I would sort it out myself, but I'm not sure if they mean that Omar was another influence or that Omar was influenced by his work. Any help? Ryubread 11:30, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Methinks that's a bit of silliness someone added. I can't find a reference anywhere to someone by the name of "Omar Turki". Definite odour of fish... Pinkville 04:08, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Comparison with Leni Riefenstahl[edit]

His later photographic and cinematic work at the service of officialdom has even been compared to Leni Riefenstahl's in Nazi Germany. Both artists documented the state uncritically, even to the point of celebration. http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/2009/feb/10/rodchenko-popova-tate does this deserve a mention somewhere?Teatreez (talk) 17:41, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
