Kazimir Malevich was a Polish-Russian artist in 1878 in what is now Ukraine.  He is most noted for his work with Russian avant-garde post-World War I. He developed the philosophy of perception and painting called Suprematism, in which he experimented with the abstract form and focused on the bare essentials of his work, emphasizing geometric shapes rather than the realistic form portrayed in Romanticism. He believed that Suprematism was the ultimate form of art. He believed that art itself (shape and color) supersedes the subject of the work. He has used a singular black shape on linen, a series of yellow, red, and blue geometric shapes on a white background, or explored different values of white, which he considered the color of infinity,  layered on each other in different shapes, and he even created human like images through geometric shapes.
