Because of such works, his involvement with Futurist poets in ‘Zaum’ – a theoretical language that denied all attempts at logical expression, and his role in the political administration of art that followed the Russian Revolution, Malevich has often been considered to be a ‘difficult’ artist to appreciate. All the more reason for this book, published in 1995 in a translation from the Spanish by Alberto Curotto, to be included in the Abrams’ Great Modern Masters series to introduce readers to Malevich, his work and his ideas. A key feature of this book is its inclusion of early paintings and works from different periods thereafter so that his artistic development can be better assessed.
The book contains two brief illustrated essays, ‘Malevich and the Russian Avant-Garde’ that is subdivided into ‘The Specifics of Painting’, ‘An Experimental Art’, ‘Ground Zero’ and ‘’The Return to Order’’, and ‘Kazemir Malevich 1878-1935’ subdivided into ‘In the Avant-Garde’, Cubo-Futurism’, ‘Suprematist Abstraction’ and ‘Under the Black Square’.
There are 68 illustrations, including 53 full-page colour plates that range from “Portrait of a Member of the Artist’s Family”, 1906, to “Self-Portrait” and “The Worker”, both from 1933.Read more ›
