Catalogue Note

Manievich was in Paris in the early 1910s and witnessed the advent of Cubism. Back in Moscow his 1916 solo exhibition at the Dobychina Art Bureau was immediately succeeded by 0.10 The Last Futurist Exhibition where he would have seen Malevich's non-objective abstractions. Although Manievich never went as far as full abstraction, the influence of the movement is seen in the angular forms of his compositions, even when depicting nature. The thick black outlines surrounding blocks of colour are reminiscent of stained glass and reference the cloisonnist works of the Post-Impressionists.
