Label Text:
This painting reflects Baranov-Rossiné’s fascination with Cubism and Orphism, a style developed by his French friend Robert Delaunay that explores the dynamism of color combinations. These movements were in vogue when the young artist arrived in Paris in 1910. Like many of his compatriots from the Pale of Settlement—an area in the Russian Empire where the Jewish community was assigned to live—he decided to emigrate to the French capital. He showed his works at the Salon d’Automne that same year and very soon became a full-fledged member of the École de Paris. While Baranov-Rossine always painted the figurative form, he experimented with the interaction of color and light, as well as sound.
