Kazimir Malevich


Kazimir Malevich was a key figure of the Russian and Soviet avant-garde and, as the inventor of Suprematist painting, one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. He reappeared fifty years after his death with The Last Futurist Exhibition, a show that opened in 1985 in a Belgrade apartment. The following year, the same exhibition took place in the Galerija Škuc, Ljubljana (Slovenia), and Art in Americapublished “A Letter from Kazimir Malevich”, a document sent from Belgrade in September 1986. Since then, works of Kazimir Malevich (Belgrade), all dated 1985, have been seen in “Art Histories” at VOX as well as :
