Kazimir Malevich was one of the most extraordinary and innovative artists of the twentieth century. As one of the founders of abstract art, Malevich has had an indelible impact of the course of history. Not only an artist, he was an influential teacher and a passionate advocate of the 'new' art. Charismatic and self-assured, Malevich became the leader of a new generation of Russian avant-garde artists, which would go on to create a new art for a new era. Featured image, "Yellow Plane in Dissolution" (1917), is reproduced from the Spring 2014 title, Kazimir Malevich and the Russian Avant-Garde, published to accompany the first major survey of the artist's work in 20 years, currently on view at the Stedelijk Museum.
