Elite Housing Built on Malevich Grave

A housing estate is being built in Nemchinovka Settlement (Moscow Region), the birth-place of the 20th century leading avant-garde artist Kazimir Malevich.

      The place, where according to the artist’s will the urn with his ashes was buried, has already been covered with a concrete layer, next to which there is an entrance to a high-rise house.

      The Russian avant-garde artist Kazimir Malevich died in Leningrad on May 15, 1935. Following his will his dead body was cremated in a suprematic coffin, and then the urn was buried under the artist’s favourite oak near Nemchinovka Village of the Moscow Region. A cubic monument depicting the black square was set up over the grave. In the years of war the grave was lost.

      Presently its location has been traced by enthusiasts with utter accuracy.
