The Non-Objective World : The Manifesto of Suprematism
Kasimir MalevichISBN: 0486429741;
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.
