Summary "In 1915, Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935) changed the future of Modern art when his experiments in painting led the Russian avant-garde into pure abstraction. He called his innovation Suprematism - an art of pure geometric form meant to be universally comprehensible regardless of cultural or ethnic origin. His Suprematist masterpieces, including Black Square (1915) and White Square on White (1920-27), continue to inspire artists throughout the world." "Accompanying the first exhibition to focus exclusively on this defining moment in Malevich's career, Kazimir Malevich Suprematism features nearly 120 paintings, drawings, and objects, among them several recently rediscovered masterworks. In addition, the book includes previously unpublished letters, texts, and diaries, along with essays by international scholars, who shed new light on this influential figure and his devotion to the spiritual in art."--BOOK JACKET
