Suprematist art deco box ca 1930

We may have preconceived ideas about what is art and what isn't. An image on a box is a decoration, if it's on the wall it is art. However, the pioneers of abstract modern art saw this quite differently. Members of De Stijl, the Bauhaus and the russian avant-garde wanted to integrate art with all aspects of life. To make it accessible for anyone. Malevich designed teapots, El Lissitzky decorated dinner plates. They would have certainly approved to spread art on a tin box.

The lid has some slight dents
