Black Square, c. 1923
Oil on canvas. 106 x 106 cm
State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg
I have always been curious if others consider this a work of art. In my opinion, media sometimes promotes the weirdest pieces. Just because something is famous, doesn't mean it is good. This is not to say that this work is bad. Nor am I saying that this is good. I want to hear honest opinions about this. Imagine that this is not Malevich. Instead, imagine you found this at a garage sale and the artist is unknown. Would you buy this? Why do you like it? Why do you hate it? Do you see anything in this work except for what it is - a black square? Let's hear it!
