In association with The Malevich Society this is the first authoritative English edition of the two-volume publication on abstract artist Kazimir Malevich's correspondence and writings. Arising from a scholarly investigation of all primary sources for his life and work, this compilation includes the artist's autobiographies, more than 270 of his letters to various correspondents, archival documents, memoirs of contemporaries (his relatives, disciples, and friends; his associates and opponents in art - artists and officials), as well as critical responses to his work. Many of these documents are published for the first time. The books are illustrated with over 400 images, including rare photographs portraying Malevich, his family, friends, and colleagues, as well as a wide selection of his works of art. These volumes are the product of more than ten years of work of two renowned Russian scholars, Irina Vakar and Tatiana Mikhienko, who have thoroughly annotated the material. Overall, the books give a comprehensive and objective picture of the artist's personal and creative life, and illuminate the problem of the relationship between the artist's private life and his creative work. The breadth of the collected materials and their thorough and unbiased analysis in the scholarly commentaries make this publication indispensable for all future research on Malevich, and a basic resource for studies of modern art generally.
