Kazimir Malevich and the Russian Avant-garde

Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum presents a major survey exhibition of work by Russian artist Kazimir Malevich, one of the founding fathers of abstract art. Kazimir Malevich and the Russian Avant-garde runs from 19 October 2013 to 2 February 2014.
Malevich at the Stedelijk
Best known for his pure abstract work, Malevich drew inspiration from a wide range of artistic trends. The exhibition uses oil paintings, watercolours, drawings and sculptures to illustrate the rich variety of styles and disciplines in his oeuvre – from the thin brushstrokes of impressionism to the geometric elements of cubism.

Journey towards Suprematism
A tribute to the Russian avant-garde, the exhibition features more than 500 objects drawn from the Stedelijk Museum collection alongside works from other major international collections. Together, the exhibits perfectly illustrate Malvich’s artistic journey as he developed his ‘own’ Suprematist style.
