Kazimir Malevich : the climax of disclosure by Rainer Crone( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and German and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 of Roman Jakobson and the "Prague School" in linguistics and the exploration of language in the writings of the poet Velimir Khlebnikov. They situate the artist within the fundamental epistemological shift from nineteenth-century objectivity to an all-pervasive modernist subjectivity, relying upon Malevich's contribution to illustrate the ways cultural production is mediated through various modes of transmission. Rainer Crone holds the Chair for Twentieth Century Art at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitä ;t, Munich, and is adjunct professor of art history at Columbia University. David Moos is a doctoral candidate in art history at Columbia University
Kazimir Malevich by Charlotte Douglas( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Under tsarist as well as Communist rulers, Malevich often worked in a coded language, as Charlotte Douglas, the leading American authority on Malevich's work, explains in this revealing new book. She shows how Malevich used icons and church figures in sometimes irreverent, sometimes deeply reverent, contexts."--BOOK JACKET. "Despite factional disputes with his colleagues and the desperate privations that Malevich and his family had to endure, he managed to forge an oeuvre of brilliantly coloristic work, from his early Symbolist self-portraits, experimental city paintings, and monumental peasant works of the 1900s to the astonishing abstractions of the 1910s and early 1920s."--BOOK JACKET. "In the last five or six years of his life, Malevich turned to a style with echoes of Holbein and Southern Renaissance artists, but Douglas also has ferreted out Malevich's relationship with the contemporary Italian painter Giorgio de Chirico. With this startling information, first published here, Douglas leads us to a profound reassessment of this towering figure."--BOOK JACKET. "Throughout his personal crises, Malevich continued to teach and to influence many leading figures in the Soviet art world of his time and later. His writings and lectures still have vital resonance for our generation - as is evident from several of his own pedagogical charts reproduced here and from his letters, some of which are used here for the first time."--BOOK JACKET. "Official recognition, however, was uncertain, and when he was offered an exhibition in Leningrad, he contrived to copy his early representational work and put false early dates on it - at least partly in an effort to avoid attacks from the proponents of Socialist Realism. This is only one of the surprising aspects of Malevich's life that Douglas has uncovered in years of research in the Soviet Union."--BOOK JACKET

Kazimir Malevich and the art of geometry by John Milner( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During 1915, in the midst of the war years that preceded the Russian Revolution, Kazimir Malevich devised and displayed a completely unprecedented geometric style of painting that he called Suprematism. By the 1920s, geometric art had become an international phenomenon. John Milner examines Malevich's art of geometry by looking at its sources of inspiration, its methods and its meanings and, arguing persuasively that it is based on obsolete Russian units of measurement rather than the decimal system, has found a new interpretative tool with which to understand this pioneering art. Milner describes Malevich's early work (pointing out his sensitivity to Russian and West European art, with their diverse traditions of depicting time and space) alongside contemporary developments in physics and mathematics, including theories such as that of the fourth dimension. He closely examines Malevich's designs for the 1913 futurist opera Victory over the Sun, the first major public manifestation of the artist's remarkable synthesis of proportion, perspective, mathematics, and futurist imagery. Malevich's subsequent display of Suprematist paintings, in 1915, was based on an elaborate system of space and proportion which even determined the actual hanging of the exhibition. Milner shows that his proportional system derived from the ancient Russian units of the arshin and the vershok. Sixteen vershok make one arshin, and one arshin is equal to 71.12cm. Malevich, along with his contemporaries, was drawing upon both traditional and modern mathematical theory to create some of the most influential, coherent and dynamic non-objective paintings of this century
Kazimir Malevich : suprematism by Kazimir Severinovich Malevich( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1915, Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935) 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 masterpieces, including Black Square (1915) and White Square on White (1920-27), continue to inspire artists throughout the world." "Accompanying the first exhibition to focus exclusively on this defining moment in Malevich's career, Kazimir Malevich Suprematism features nearly 120 paintings, drawings, and objects, among them several recently rediscovered masterworks. In addition, the book includes previously unpublished letters, texts, and diaries, along with essays by international scholars, who shed new light on this influential figure and his devotion to the spiritual in art."--Jacket

L'on connaît Kasimir Malévitch pour son œuvre de peintre. L'on connaît moins son œuvre d'écriture, celle d'un théoricien hors pair. Écrits et peinture sont du reste indissociables, comme le montre avec clarté le présent ensemble. La place qu'a occupée le texte dans l'œuvre de Malévitch est immense, à la fois à titre d'enseignement, à titre de réflexion personnelle sur la peinture et l'art en général, et à titre stratégique. Ces écrits débutent en 1913 pour prendre fin en 1930. Ils comportent aussi bien ses manifestes que ses cours et ses traités. On y découvre le cheminement intellectuel de l'artiste et ce qui l'a conduit au suprématisme. Loin de n'être qu'une théorie esthétique, le suprématisme est une philosophie et un engagement politique, visant à la libération de l'individu. Mais dans ses écrits, Malévitch se montre aussi un fin connaisseur de l'histoire de l'art. La radicalité de son art s'inscrit dans une continuité, qu'il nous fait brillamment sentir à travers le regard subtil qu'il pose sur l'œuvre de Cézanne, de Van Gogh et de Monet, et après eux sur le cubisme et le futurisme. Malévitch adopte aussi le ton de la polémique virulente dans ses manifestes, notamment face à un symbolisme honni. Essentiellement parus dans la revue Anarchie, aux côtés des textes de Maïakovski, ces écrits le placent dans la lignée des avant-Ơgardes. Malévitch apparaît également en pédagogue zélé, remportant l'adhéƠsion du lecteur
