Hmmm Malévich. A god, but in fairness the place of Russian contructivists in world art history has been slighty over stated in the last fifty years.
Although I do like his subtle yet skilful placement of the dustbin in Soldier of the First Division, 1914;Oil and collage on canvas,The museum of modern art, New York.

His minimalist Black/White square iconic paintings were truely their own way.
.....was'nt that whole Russian art movement great as a new way of thinking, and as to counter capitalism.....Tatlin was a good contributer too......but pity Stalin overshadowed it all.
