Malevich in Assen

No less than 60 original paintings by Kazimir Malevich can still be seen in the Drents Museum in Assen. Malevich (1878-1935) is the most important Russian artist from the first half of the 20th century. The collection is owned by the Russian State Museum in Saint Petersburg.

Malevich painted a lot of figurative works with agricultural life as its central theme. After his death, nearly all his work went to the Russian State Museum and was barely known outside the Soviet Union under the communist regime. After the perestroika, they gained some fame.
I really enjoyed seeing this exhibition of colourful paintings!
