When I saw that image I thought, "that's the most realistic painting of ceramic I've ever seen - such wonderful reflections of light!"

I love the first set. But I don't know if I'd like it as much if you hadn't given the title. :hehe: It's good either way, but the title really is perfect. :biggrin:

The title is no joke, Malevich was hired to revolutionize the production of the porcelain factory.
When, two years after Malevich painted the Black Square, Lenin came to power, the suprematist led his own quasi-political movement, offering the revolution its ideal art. In 1923 Suprematism seized power at the Imperial porcelain factory. Malevich and his followers Suetin and Chasnik were employed there to radicalise its designs. Porcelain had begun to be manufactured, by order of the Empress Elizabeth, beside St Petersburg's river Neva in 1744. The Imperial porcelain factory used serf labour to imitate western European porcelain. Some of the plates and cups the suprematists painted were blanks prepared for the tsar.

It sounds absurd - revolutionary porcelain. But it's impossible not to be awed by the energy and grace of Malevich's half-cups. You're transported by this fragile stuff to another world, a utopia beyond the stars where red and yellow and black planes of colour cross on their enigmatic Einsteinian trajectories. There couldn't be a more moving testament to the lost culture of modern art.

In Russia in 1923, it was possible, despite mounting evidence, for Malevich and co to believe they were shaping a world free and pure and spiritual. Malevich was not a materialist, which makes him a pretty unconvincing Marxist. Like Marc Chagall, he was a seer. Yet he somehow persuaded himself his art was "scientific". Look again at that photograph of Malevich and his followers. He holds a porcelain plate. Why? The most radical aspiration of Russian artists after 1917 was to transform everyday life: to make it impossible for anyone to remember the rituals of old Russia, the samovars and icons.

The first decade after the revolution in 1917 (Russia) saw a real flowering of art. Some of it was bold and adventurous and often experimental. Sadly as time went on the 'dictatorship of the proletariate' kicked in. Most soviets were controlled by peasants who knew next to nothing about art and who often decided anything they didn't understand was 'subversive', revisionist or against the revolution in some vague way. Many artists were killed, exiled to Siberia or fled.

Stalin of course compounded all of that and made it state wide. Oddly though his favourite movies were Hollywood musicals, preferably starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers - oddly decadent.

I knew my art school days would come in handy one day.
