Dabbling in fauvism and cubism before founding the Suprematist movement, Russian painter and sculptor Kazimir Malevich (1879 1935) was a leading gure of the avant garde and a pioneer of the non objective style that he felt would ‘free viewers from the material world.’ In 1915, the same year he produced his most famous painting, Black Square, he published the manifesto ‘From Cubism to Suprematism’. To critics who accused his work of being devoid of beauty and nature, he responded ‘art does not need us, and it never did.’ His 1918 painting Suprematist Composition: White on White, one of the most radical artworks of its time, fetched $ 60 million at auction in 2008.
