Description for the presentation 2015-2016 in the National Museum of Modern Art

Malevich produced this painting for an exhibition he organised in St Petersburg in December 1915, which he called “0.10 The Last Futurist Exhibition”. In this event he proposed a “zero of form”, the some thirty abstract works embodying the idea of an art beyond the realm of the senses: Suprematism. The cross is, with the circle, a key figure for the artist, both of them derived from the square, the fundamental reference point of his system. The cross generates a certain dynamic, as witnessed in this painting by the uncertain edges, the slight tilt and the precarious equilibrium of its arms.
