Square, cross, circle...What is their secret attraction? What is it that has made people stare intently, for nearly a century, at what seem to be nothing more than simple geometric figures? Kasimir Malevich (1878-1935) understood the previously incomprehensible, dared to subject the unsubjected to aesthetic interpretation and artistic transformation, sensed the cosmos in the elementary and turned it into a work of art. Malevich's Suprematist compositions and his Futurist images of budetlyane, the people of the future, are all unique hallmarks of the Russian avant-garde and markers of Malevich's influential and masterful position therein. The Russian State Museum presents its collection of works by Malevich - the largest in the world.
