Label Text:
This image is reminiscent of Goncharova’s war print Christian Host. Along with parallels between Rozanova’s Destruction of a City and Goncharova’s The Foredoomed City, Airplanes Over the City, and Angels and the City, this related imagery comes from common sources available at the time. With the abstracted depiction of soldiers, Rozanova draws the viewer’s attention to the new Futurist aesthetic rather than evoking compassion or narrating a story. The soldier blowing a trumpet in front of the row of fighters mirrors the signature figure on the third sheet of the series.
