🖼️ Casimir Malevich, Black Square, 1915, Tretyakov Gallery
The ideas behind Suprematism are fascinating to me, especially when one considers these ideas in the context in which they were conceived. Suprematism (as well as the vision of the father of abstract art, Wassily Kandinsky) led to other visions of abstract art—the work of Jackson Pollack, Willem de Kooning, Piet Mondrian, Mark Rothko, and on and on—art that I love, art that moves me. None of this great art would have been made in the way that it was without Kazimir Malevich painting that black square.
