Description of the painting by Kazimir Malevich Girls in the field

And here Malevich is true to his tradition. Everything seems to be left with his style, but still not quite. The same geometric shapes – only they are woven into the female image. But these images are equipped with excellent color gamut. There is a place for red and black, green and yellow.

Yes, almost all of the rainbow spectrum is observed, and no one will say that it was depicted by the very Malevich, who until recently depicted on canvases only solid geometric figures in a certain color – black. But why suddenly he decided to move away from his cubic style? Why all of a sudden? This can be easily explained: the artist in that style has become less roomy and, leaving behind him the use of all the same geometry, he returned to almost familiar to the philistine styles.

It could be a landscape or even a portrait, but the artist did not draw faces. He, using the uniqueness of the figures, as if built them out of human figures or designed landscapes. Only at the same time used the whole range of colors. This period of his work is considered the brightest and most expressive.

On this canvas, everything is schematically and proportionately true. If you look purely theoretically, the sky is blue, the earth is multi-colored. And the people themselves, since they originated from the earth, must also be multi-colored, just not to mix with the colors of the earth. All shapes, all faces, all colors are drawn. And therefore, after some time, you begin to understand or, more precisely, imagine what the girls might look like. Represent their faces, their real figures, their concerns. Once in the field, then the peasant woman. And since they are in the field, it is time to harvest.

You can imagine this colorful brightness as a harvest festival. Remember how solemnly and with honor celebrated in the village this day. Perhaps Malevich, therefore, supplied this canvas with paints, in order to note that it was such a day on the canvas.
