1910

106 views

The artist said that it is based on impressions of the Cossacks’ entrance to Moscow during the revolutionary events of 1905-1906. This work is semi-abstract.

There are two Cossacks with sabers in the upper left corner. On the right there are two Cossacks with lances and one with a saber against a blue hill with a house on it. The rainbow is a bridge.

I saw Cossacks at the Tate in London last summer 2009. One of my favorites. Looks similar to Composition IV
