Provenance Kasimir Sevenovitch Malevich, Polish / Russian 1878-1935. He was a Pioneer of geometric abstract art and the originator of the avant-garde Suprematist movement. Best known today perhaps for his “Black Square.” He was a strict Catholic, who believed that the purpose of art was the expression of and encouragement of spiritual feeling. More tolerated than loved by the Soviets, he was nevertheless recognised and celebrated after his death.
Note Mourlot Studios was a commercial print shop founded in 1852 by the Mourlot family and located in Paris, France. It was also known as Imprimerie Mourlot, Mourlot Freres and Atelier Mourlot. Founded by Francois Mourlot, it started off producing wallpaper. Later, his son Jules Mourlot would expand the business to handle the production of chocolate labels for companies such as Chocolat Poulain, as well as ledgers, maps and stationary. Starting in the 1920s, Jules' son, Fernand Mourlot, converted one of the locations into a studio dedicated to printing Fine art lithography.
Condition In good original condition, with minor wear consistent with age and use.
