The most famous artworks from Russian art are the Bogatyrs by Viktor Vasnetsov and Morning in the Pinetree Forest by Ivan Shishkin.

The artist of the painting, Kazimir Malevich, was the founder of the Geometric abstraction during early 20th century when the avant-garde movement was on the rise.
For his new art style, artist proclaimed, “Only with the disappearance of a habit of mind which sees in pictures little corners of nature, madonnas and shameless Venuses, shall we witness a work of pure, living art.”
