We just learned about the famous painting Dynamic Hieroglyph of the Bal Tabarin by Gino Severini.

Another famous work of art is Black Square by Russian artist Kazimir Malevich in 1915.

This art was part of something called suprematist art.
This type of art used simple shapes like circles, squares, lines and rectangles
