Black Square

This chapter, which sums up the key findings of this study on Russian avant-garde painter Kazimir Malevich's painting called Black Square and the origin of Suprematism, explains that Malevich began his move toward absolute nonobjectivity in 1913 and describes his Fevralism era, which lasted from early 1914 until mid-1915. It also suggests that the appearance of Black Square in June 1915 marked a change in artistic paradigms, and in formulaic form crystallized the end and beginning of major epochs.

Keywords:   Kazimir Malevich, Black Square, Suprematism, nonobjectivity, Fevralism, artistic paradigms, Russian painter
