artist Kasimir Malevich was a victim of Soviet
political philosophy which demanded artistic
realism, he died in poverty and obscurity in
Leningrad in the 1935. However, the power of
his art has survived the Cold War and will survive
in to the 21st Century.
Along with Picasso, Malevich was a major proponent
of cubism and his art shows great clarity of
outline. He coined the term "suprematism" to
describe his work, referring to the supremacy
of feeling over other artistic considerations.
