Russian-born Kazimir Malevich (1879 - 1935) was Russia's most influential avant-garde artist, a key figure in a succession of art movements in the early twentieth century. His style of severe geometric abstraction, which he called suprematism, was a precursor to the development of constructivism. This publication accompanies a unique retrospective of one of the founders of abstract art. The exhibition is unprecedented in its scope, and sheds new light on Malevich's career as a painter, printmaker and teacher. Accessible essays by leading art historians discuss all aspects of his diverse output, offering an overview of his groundbreaking work as well as a more detailed exploration of a number of his drawings, teaching activities and revolutionary ideas. The lavish illustrations include paintings, drawings and sculpture, as well as the teaching charts he used to explain his ideas.
