About Kasimir Malevich and his style.

Kasimir Malevich (1879-1935), Russian painter and theorist, founder of Supermatism. Born and trained near Kiev, he settled in Moscow in 1905.His painting style thereafter reflects the influence of a succession of European movements, from impressionism and Post-Impressionism, through a primitivist celebration of peasant life – due largely to his association with Cubism and Futurism. By 1915 he had produced his first purely abstract geometric compositions, which he labeled Suprematism.
