"Breaking Free of the Earth:
Kazimir Malevich 1878-1935"
most inscrutable of the Russian revolutionary artists, Kazimir Malevich had
the misfortune to die in official Soviet disfavor, and to remain under that
disapproval for decades afterwards. Now political changes have opened the
doors to these hidden storerooms, and Malevich's pictures can be publicly
viewed once again. This program documents the first major retrospective of
his work since his death more than 50 years ago, providing viewers with
analyses and commentary on his work that is vivid, precise and personal.
Color. 52 minutes.
