Malevich Paintings

malevich.jpgKasimir Malevich (1878 - 1935)

Kasimir Malevich did not attribute any use or purpose to art and it was his belief that artists should be spiritually independent in order to create it.  Starting with simple drawings, his geometric square, cross and rectangle were intended to show the 'supremacy of forms'.  Malevich initiated Suprematism in 1913 with his sets and costumes for the Futurist opera Victory Over the Sun, for which one of the blackcloths was a black and white square.  He finally exhibited the iconic Black Square at the '0.10' show in Petrograd in 1915.  Three years later, he produced his famous White on White, adding a mystic announcement:  "I have emerged into white.  Beside me, comrade pilots...swim!  The free white sea, infinity, lies before you."  This statement anticipated Minimalism by fifty years.

Post-revolution, the young Soviet Union seemed fertile ground for artists, and Suprematism became the style for everything from film posters to ceramics and textiles.  Malevich, a man of great charm and a brilliant speaker, held teaching posts in various institutions and was made a curator at the Kremlin.

But beyond the early 1920s, the State tightened its grip and decreed that the arts should glorify political and social ideals.  Oppressed and marginalized - even arrested once - Malevich watched while Stalin imposed Socialist Realism in 1932 and banished independent art movements from what had been the world's most progressive country for modern abstract art.

He died of cancer in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) in 1935.
