  Suprematism was an early 20th-century form of geometric abstraction. The aim was to avoid representing the visible world, in favour of non-objective abstraction in which the work of art would stand only for itself—in other words as ‘pure art’. Malevich, the movement\'s founder, published a manifesto explaining his aims in 1915. Stylistically, Suprematism uses simple geometrical shapes, such as the circle, square or cross, disposed across the picture plane with little or no suggestion of recession into depth, as in Malevich\'s Suprematist Composition: White on White (1918). The movement, which reached its apogee in Revolutionary Russia, had a significant influence in the development of constructivism. PD MG
