Suprematism described - the Russian art-movement in short quotes + in images; - free art-resource for students, pupils and art teachers

.
Russian Suprematism is her described and explained in short text-quotes. Most quotes are taken from the Dutch art-critic Jacob Bendien, in his book ‘Trends in the Present Day Art of Painting’. They combine very well with my PDF of Malevich quotes.

Suprematism started c. 1915/16 by founding artist Malevich. It was a more subtle art variation of earlier Constructivism, but essentially different; this resulted in firm art-debates between the two Russian art-movements. Suprematism’s most important goal was to express the ‘pure experiences / feelings of daily life in modern times’. For instance the experience of ‘flying’ in an airplane - as Malevich called this, as an example.
.
Some selected text-quotes of Jacob Bendien on Suprematism - as a short introduction of his extended quotes in the PDF:

  • ’According to the Suprematists art is not only dependent on the nature of the artist, but also on the sort of environment from which it is produced. For instance: Cezanne - from a small provincial town, the Cubists and Futurists - from worldly cities and industry, and the Suprematists: planes / aviation.'

  • ’The Suprematists are the poets of Constructivism. They are not blinded by rationalization like many of the Russian Constructivists.'

  • ’The Suprematists want, where possible, to give feelings / emotions absolute supremacy. Even objects such as tables, chairs and beds are, according to Malevich, ���not objects but the form of plastic perceptions… …the experiences of sitting, standing or walking are, in the first place plastic experiences’
