Nina Osipovna Kogan (1887-1942) was a leading Russian painter of the Suprematist School. She died in 1942 in Leningrad during the Siege of Leningrad – it has long been thought of starvation but it now seems likely she was murdered by the NKVD.

Australian poet Clive James (one of the three most erudite men of the 20th century) wrote a poem about Kogan, titled “Nina Kogan’s Geometrical Heaven”:

Nina Kogan’s work has been offered at auction multiple times, the record price being is $54,227 USD for Composition sold at Christie’s in 2006.
