          Original: Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, ownership recognised by agreement with the estate of Kazimir Malevich in 2008

          This striking, cubist-influenced work was described by Malevich as 'a-logical' as it features many different objects, overlapping at different scales. The full story behind the piece is unknown but the fish may represent religion, the bayonets war, and the figure may be Malevich himself or Futurist David Burlyuk.

          Artist details

          A pioneer of abstract art, Kazimir Malevich was a painter and designer whose career coincided with the Russian revolutions of 1905 and 1917 and their aftermath. Malevich was the founder of the abstract style Suprematism which was a leading force in the development of Constructivism, the repercussions of which were felt throughout the 20th century. Malevich’s most famous works explored pure geometric forms and their relationships to each other within the painting. He continued to heavily influence the evolution of non-representational art in the West long after his death in 1935.
