Following not so long after the large retrospective devoted to the Russian Suprematist in Amsterdam in 1989, the Fundación Juan March is holding a much smaller show (forty-two pictures rather than 215) from 4 April. The exhibition has been put together by the State Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg, and covers the years 1900 to 1933. It includes some early post-impressionist works as well as some Fauve-inspired canvases, followed by a brief cubist phase in 1913-14. Key suprematist works on show will include “Black square on a white ground”, exhibited at the “0.10” exhibition of 1915. In May the exhibition travels to the Picasso Museum, Barcelona, followed by the IVAM, Valencia, dates to be confirmed.
