In the next few posts, I will put up photos of Russian modern art that are on display in the Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val (Третьяковская галерея на Крымском Валу) – a branch of the State Tretyakov Gallery. This is part 2, and part one is here.

Kasimir Malevich – a pioneer of geometric abstract art and the originator of the avant-garde Suprematist movement.

Black square (1915) helped launched the concept of Suprematist.

I am particularly keen on the graphical work by El Lissitzky. His work greatly influenced the Bauhaus and constructivist movements, and he experimented with production techniques and stylistic devices that would go on to dominate 20th-century graphic design.

This looks like something that could be made by Vasily Kandinsky but it is by Alexander Volkov.
