Russian artist Ely Belyutin recently passed away at age 87 in Moscow.  Belyutin was a champion of abstract art and founded The New Reality artistic academy in 1948.  Politically he was a controversial figure who seemed to have ruffled feathers as he was fired from his teaching position at the Moscow Polygraphic Institute in 1959 and in 1962 General Secretary Nikita Khrushchev cancelled an exhibition that primarily consisted of works by Belyutin and his students.
