Kazimir Malevich

by Rainer Crone | 15 September 2014
Category: Art & Design
Kasimir Malevich's (1878-1935) sudden and startling realization of a nonrepresentational way of painting-which he called Suprematism-stands as a transformative moment in twentieth-century art. In this book, Rainer Crone and David Moos trace the artist's development from his beginnings in Ukraine to his involvement with Futurist circles in Moscow through to the late 1920s and beyond. They convincingly demonstrate that Malevich's late representational painting, still widely misunderstood, solidifies his extraordinarily inventive stance.             Against the historical background of distinctly Russian progressive cultural and scientific movements, the authors define affinities between Malevich's work and other nonpolitical revolutions: relativity and quantum theory in physics; the work of Roman Jakobson and the "Prague School" in linguistics; and the exploration of language in the writings of the poet Velimir Khlebnikov. They situate the artist within the fundamental epistemological shift from nineteenth-century objectivity to an all-pervasive modernist subjectivity, relying upon Malevich's contribution to illustrate the ways cultural production is mediated through various modes of transmission. With over 100 illustrations, this engaging book presents Malevich as a uniquely creative artist, embodying in his work many of the insights and discoveries that define the twentieth century and the condition of modern life.
