          This iconic work, from the second year of Malevich's Suprematist period, depicts coloured geometrical forms that appear to be rising and falling down the canvas. It's a beautiful example of the pure abstraction he was working towards at the time.

          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.
