I’m going to talk about a painting that, for at least 20 years, I ‘ve felt fascination. The first time that I’ve listened about it, it was thanks to Manel Trenchs, Art History teacher in my school. He was a conference about this painting, and it seemed me something different that how I understood the art.
The picture measures 79.5 by 79.5 cm. It was created in 1918, the year after the October Revolution, by Kazimir Malevich. It is an oil-on canvas. It is one of the more well-known examples of the Russian Suprematism movement.
Next, I want to talk about the colours. The main colour is white, yes, you are understanding right. In the foreground there is a white square shape that it seems it is coming out of the canvas. There are brushstrokes in white colour. In the background the same painting wants to seem another white square shape.
Finally, I like this painting for your simplicity and your creativity. In my opinion, I consider that it must very difficult to paint in just one colour, moreover this colour is the white.
In addition, I think it’s so peculiarity that a French playwright woman, Yasmina Reza, created a play inspired in this painting. This play is called Art, and it has become in one of the most famous in the theatre world
So, do you know which is this painting?
