The painting was painted in 1917.
Genre in painting: Suprematism.
Malevich is recognized as the genius of his work, who painted not only paintings of the portrait genre, abstraction, but also canvases related to Suprematism. This is his own ideology. Malevich is the founder of Suprematism.
The genre is based on a complete denial of habitual perception and ignoring all existing dogmas. If earlier the canvases of artists were appreciated for the realism and naturalness of the image, then Kazemir Malevich broke the centuries-old rules that had prevailed. After some time, Suprematism began to be used in architecture, design of walls and utensils. The idea of the genre is to use geometric shapes as a plot.
Malevich Suprematism is divided into two periods until 1915 and after. Until 1915, the artist used in his stories only squares, soaring lines. The second stage of Suprematism was lines, circles, various geometric intersections.
The picture "From Space" refers to the second stage. The artist painted several paintings on the theme of space. He had a special alluring influence on him. Here we see in the plot figures of unusual geometric shapes, perpendicular lines.
The canvas is written with a simple pencil. Who knows what Malevich wanted to say with such an image of space. Perhaps this is a view of the Earth and planets, or maybe a mysterious tunnel through which from the surface of our planet you can go into the unknown expanses of the abyss. After all, the artist often mentioned in his conversations about human travels into space, flying houses, independence from gravity.
Everyone perceives Malevich’s work in his own way, someone's work causes complete indignation and denial, someone raises it and considers it a genius of the 20th century. The mystery of Malevich has not been solved until now, great minds are puzzling, trying to understand the artist.
The painting is in a private collection.
