“There are not many visitors to the exhibition. There were little over 200 at the opening.
This was the poorest opening I have ever seen. To satisfy your curiosity here is a
copy of Malevich’s Lady in Automobile and Boating. I didn’t buy any post cards, too expensive.
The most disgusting thing about this whole exhibition and the artists
is that everything is done underhandedly, and if before everyone “only worried about themselves,”
now everyone is concerned with how at any price to harm someone else.
They have distorted the catalogue and done so many other petty things that even Malevich
was forced to admit it’s disgusting…Malevich is like a lackey with them, and the
stability of the organisation hangs on whether he will remainsatisfied with his “position”.”
