Kazimir Malevich’s art and his Suprematist manifesto are amongst the most vital artistic developments of the 20th century. This sparked something in Malevich.

We should accept nothing as predetermined as constituted for eternity. The black square became not only an icon of Malevich’s style, nnon-objective an icon of twentieth century art. He made his intention clear; he wanted to completely abandon depicting reality and instead invent a new world of shapes and forms.
