The work Composition with transparent red, brown and blue is one of the essential expressions of a new direction of suprematism, whose father became Kazimir Malevich. Reality abstracted only into basic forms and completely devoid of descriptive criteria became a new avant-garde movement, which was joined by one of its iconic representatives, Ivan Vasilyevich Kliun, who later also devoted himself to cubofuturism. In his Composition, Kliun creates an iriacional two-dimensional space where he freely projects geometric shapes in basic colors and subcets them to the basic laws of optics. Kliun completely rejects the forms of utilitarian art and creates art that is based only on art itself. Suprematist painting becomes a visual form of Chlebnik's Zaum language, which inspired the movement and expressed its direction towards the transcendence. He made the art in question, inspired by concrete, completely abstract art, encouraging individuals to contemplate the world that is immaterial.
