Nakov, Andrei. MALEVICH: Painting the Absolute. Four Volumes: 1,596 pages with 1,642 color and b&w plates. 4to, cloth. London, Lund Humphries, 2010.
This monumental 4-volume monograph is the most in-depth treatment to date of the life and career of Russian supremicist Kazimir Malewicz. The result of 25 years of research, it contains numerous previously unpublished documents and interpretations, stemming from access to archives in Europe and Russia (among other sources, Nakov used the archives of the Malewicz family, those of Viktoria, the artist's younger sister, and Una, his second daughter)
The catalogue raisonné of Malewicz was published in June 2002 in Paris by Adam Biro. It is currently out of print. The addendum to that volume and the bibliography, an indispensable tool for consulting the catalogue raisonné, are included in the fourth volume of this publication.
