Malevich’s abstract paintings belong to the intense period of artistic experimentation that coincided with the 1917 Revolution in Russia. He abandoned representative images in favour of what he called Suprematism in 1915. In these works he used severely reduced geometrical forms – most famously a black square on a white canvas – whose meditative quality served as secular equivalents to Russian icons.
