This remarkably tense work is particularly fascinating for its inner contrast between the colors on the one hand and the identdeical directions of the filling. Both the dissonant colorsand the homogenuous style that seems to swell from the lower left part urging to t he upper right, make for the composition'sdominannce and strong expression. The black paint, applied in pastose stripes determiones the structure of the composition, it is increased by white, blue, yellow and red color traces.
