Today, one of the most popular paintings in the museum collection of avant-garde style paintings is a painting by Kazimir Malevich, known throughout the world. At the same time, the picture of life in a large hotel is one of the most magical, mysterious and mysterious. Basically, this mystery is achieved due to the style and cube-futuristic period of this artist.
The canvas was in the museum's collection about a century ago, in 1929. And at that moment when it got there, it was recorded as a creative art work of one unknown to the artist’s society. And so the painting of Malevich would have remained unknown if M.D. Filosofov, who was the scientific secretary of the Hermitage, had not visited his husbands once. It was he who made the suggestion that this picture showing the hotel belongs to Malevich.
Separately, it should be noted that some units of researchers, critics and analysis professionals attributed this picture to the merits and works of I.V. Klyun. The conclusion that the work could belong to his pen is based on Malevich’s unusual coloring and monochrome color of the whole picture. This style of image was not characteristic of Kazimir Malevich, because before that all his paintings were created in the same period preceding the beginning of supermatism in painting.
There were other opinions that suggested that this work was not written by Malevich, but with his direct participation. This opinion is based on the fact that there are some differences in the interpretation of two parts of the working canvas - the peripheral part and the central part. The peripheral part is a tightly recorded one, and the central part is a penetrated word, transmitting light.
However, photographs and studies taken a little later showed that this picture depicting a hotel is a true creation of Malevich.
