Europe Celebrates Kazimir Malevich, a Pioneer in Abstract Art

As a wave of European museums exhibited the work of Russian artist Kazimir Malevich, 100 years after his landmark “Zero-Ten” exhibition, Howard Spiegler spoke to The New York Times about Herrick’s efforts to recover many of Malevich’s most important works. Commenting on Malewicz vs. City of Amsterdam, where Herrick advised Malevich’s heirs, Howard said that heads of state and government-owned museums like the Stedelijk had traditionally been protected from suits by the doctrine of sovereign immunity, but American court rulings had whittled away at that shield.
