Label Text:
Single combat becomes a leitmotif of Rozanova’s series. The gesture of the warrior on the dark horse evokes the familiar stance of Saint Michael killing the dragon. This and the print Battle bear similarities with Kandinsky’s works from around 1913, in which horses and battle scenes figure prominently.
