  11. 11. Malevich's designs for the opera marked a major break with theatrical agreement, since they were neither embellished nor did they demonstrate a comprehensible scene. The strange darkness in the painting aligns well with the belief that the opera was about Victory, over the old accepted concept of the beautiful sun.
  12. 12. Nevertheless, it is quite evident that all of the famous abstract art works were made by Kazimir Malevich. One needs a free mind without any pre- conceived notions of art to accept these paintings as for many this is the most unacceptable and strangest art form ever. End Note
