Suprematism

Suprematism is the direction of non-objective art, invented by KS Malevich. Russian and Western European researchers often derive it from the French word supreme, while the term is actually derived from the French word supre mati (superiority, primacy) or even from the Polish suprémacja, which has the same meaning.

Landscape poetry

My lessons in art history are different. I give lectures to adults, and I try to talk more with the children, to play, to bring about “co-creation” in them. Especially fascinating for both parties are classes devoted to the landscape genre. The first lesson in landscape for first-graders (in an art school for first-graders 10-11 years old) is traditionally held – first you need to get acquainted with the features of the genre, its varieties, with the most famous Russian landscape painters. The real upbringing of feelings begins in the next lesson, which I call “The Poetry of Landscape”. Considering the landscape paintings, we will now try to poetically interpret the image.
