Book Description
Kasimir Malevich's (1878-1935) sudden and startling
realization of a nonrepresentational way of painting, which
he called Suprematism, stands as a seminal moment in
twentieth-century art. Rainer Crone and David Moos trace the
artist's development from his beginnings in the 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...


Kazimir Malevich: Suprematism
Matthew Drutt (Compiler)

May 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In 1915, Kazimir Malevich changed the future of modern art when his experiments in painting led the Russian avant-garde into pure abstraction. He called his innovation Suprematism--an art of pure geometric form meant to be universally comprehensible regardless of cultural or ethnic origin. His Suprematist masterpiece, White Square on White (1920-27), continues to inspire artists throughout the world. Focused exclusively on this defining moment in Malevich's career, Kazimir Malevich: Suprematism features nearly 120 paintings, drawings and objects, among them several recently discovered masterworks. In addition, the book includes previously unpublished letters, essays and diaries, along with essays by international scholars, who shed new light on this popular figure and his devotion to the spiritual in art. Edited by...

Book Description
Building upon 20 years of groundbreaking exhibitions of Russian avant-garde art--including The Great Utopia: Russian and Soviet Art 1915-1932 (1992) and Kazimir Malevich: Suprematism (2003), among others--the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presents this blockbuster show, which demonstrates that Russia's contributions to world art history extends far beyond the early 20th century. Like the exhibition, this catalogue explores the vast and complex phenomenon embodied by the word "Russia" through the lens of the masterworks of Russian art from the 12th century to today, as well as art from the world-class collections amassed by Russian tsars and merchants from the 18th through the 20th centuries. The remarkable and interconnected history of Russian art and Russia's most important collections over nine centuries includes...

Malevich and Film
Margarita Tupitsyn

Book Description
Russian painter Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935), unlike other prominent Soviet artists, has not often been considered in discussions of the contributions of the avant-garde to photography and film. Yet a close examination of theoretical and practical aspects of Malevich's oeuvre not only places him fully in the Soviet post-abstract discourse on these media but also, as Margarita Tupitsyn argues in this engaging book, alters the accepted view of his post-Suprematist period. Exploring Malevich's involvement with film for the first time, Tupitsyn draws on little known writings about cinema by the artist himself, newly accessible works, and many previously unpublished photographs and documents. Malevich's influence on twentieth-century art extends far more widely than has been claimed for him before, the author concludes. ...

Juliet Clark, in: Berkeley Art Museum / Pacific Film Archive: ART & FILM NOTES, November/December, 2002
The book edited by Stanfordprofessor OksanaBulgakowa allows to discover the visionary artist/theorist's idiosyncratic take on the most objective art: cinema.

Book Description
What did Kazimir Malevich (1878 - 1935), the proponent of pure abstraction in painting, have to do with film, that mechanical repository of everything that is banal and worthless? It was only in 1924 that Malevich described film as a system that fixed reality beyond the cultural idea. Nonetheless, between 1925 and 1929, he wrote several articles on film as well as a script. These texts, by the man who created the 'black square', which are assembled in this volume and translated into English for the first time, lead us...


The Non-Objective World: The Manifesto of Suprematism
Kasimir Malevich
0486429741
May 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
An established Russian painter in the early twentieth century, Kasimir Malevich became one of the most important pioneers of geometric abstract art. First published in 1926, The Non-Objective World defined the artist's radical, non-objective style, which he referred to as Suprematism--a mode of expression in which emotion dominated all other artistic considerations. Among Malevich's many innovative works included in the text are the famous 1913 painting of Black Square on White and White on White (1918). One of the twentieth century's most profound statements of aesthetic theory, this book is stimulating and necessary reading for artists, students, and patrons of the fine arts. 92 black-and-white illustrations.


Lines of Resistance: Dziga Vertov and the Twenties

Book Description
Lines of Resistance is a major collection of little-known writings by and about Dziga Vertov, available here in English for the first time. While Vertov’s uncompromising writings and his experimental features, such as Man with a Movie Camera, are known and discussed in the West, less is known about the other films he made in the 1920s, and still less about the response they provoked in the Soviet Union and abroad. Vertov liked to call his films and his essays "bombs"—and indeed the public reaction to them was nothing short of explosive. This book follows the development of his work and opinions from 1917 to 1930, and chronicles contemporary reactions to them, including such prominent personalities as fellow directors Lev Kuleshov and Sergei Eisenstein, artists Aleksandr Rodchenko and Kazimir Malevich, and...
