Kazimir Malevich (1879-1935) is considered one of the greatest artistic innovators of the 20th century. His work is influenced by the Russian folk art and modern trends from Paris, until he makes his first abstract-geometric paintings in 1915. A courageous act in Russia, where academic, figurative art is the norm. He derives the name 'Suprematism' from the Latin word 'supremus' which translates to 'the highest' or 'the most perfect'.

During the Soviet regime in the late 20s, Malevich is forced to make more figurative pieces again. Ignored by the regime he died in Leningrad in 1935, but by then his name as one of the founders of abstract art has been established.
