Let us be fair to Malevich

Sometimes I hear the objection that in my test True art, or fake? there is a flaw. You see, to evaluate the quality one needs to see not a small image on the monitor, but a big painting in a museum.

I admit that this objection has some merit. If one looks, for example, on the image of Karl Brullov's painting The Last Day of Pompeii on a computer screen it is hard to see anything.


Therefore to give a fair representation of the art of the artist one needs to show magnified fragments:

Let us be fair to Malevich as well. Here is his painting Black Square

True art, or fake?
Take the quiz!

And here are the magnified fragments of this masterpiece of visual art:
