Publisher's description: The first authoritative English edition of a two-volume book on abstract artist Kazimir Malevich's correspondence and writings, this illuminating text is published in association with the Malevich Society. Arising from a scholarly investigation of all primary sources for his life and work, this compilation includes the artist's autobiographies, more than 270 of his letters to various correspondents, archival documents, memoirs of contemporaries (his relatives, disciples, and friends; his associates and opponents in art-artists and officials), as well as critical responses to his work. Many of these documents are published for the first time. Illustrated with more than 400 rare photographs portraying Kazimir Malevich, his family, friends, and colleagues, this volume is the product of more than ten years of work by two renowned Russian scholars. A comprehensive and objective picture of the artist's personal and creative life, this publication is indispensable for all future research on Malevich and a basic resource for studies of modern art generally.
