-:''[[monochrome painting]]''+''[[White on White]]'' (1918) by [[Malevich]].
-'''Kazimir Severinovich Malevich''' ([[February 23]], [[1878]] – [[May 15]], [[1935]]) was a [[painter]] and [[art theorist]], pioneer of [[geometric abstract art]] and one of the most important members of the [[Russian avant-garde]]. +

-== Monochrome paintings ==+
-It remains one of a great mysteries of 20th century art, how, while leading a comfortable career, during which he just followed all the latest trends in art, in 1915 Malevich suddenly came up with the idea of [[Suprematism]]. The fact that Malevich throughout all his life was signing and re-signing his works using earlier dates makes this u-turn in his artistic career even more ambiguous. However in 1915 he published his manifesto ''[[From Cubism to Suprematism]]''. In 1915-1916 he worked with other Suprematist artists in a peasant/artisan [[co-operative]] in [[Skoptsi]] and [[Verbovka]] village. In 1916-1917 he participated in exhibitions of the ''[[Jack of Diamonds (artists)|Jack of Diamonds]]'' group in Moscow together with [[Nathan Altman]], [[David Burliuk]] and A. Ekster, among others. Famous examples of his Suprematist works include ''[[Black Square]]'' (1915) and ''[[White on White]]'' (1918). +
