In the Theatre Studio. 1945 yr.
The composition is a fragment of a large room with a foot sewing machine with openwork side supports, near which there is just a wooden chair with an inventory number on the back of ГАТОБ 142, which is partially covered with a cabinet (or box). In the depths are indistinctly visible outlines of different objects, on the right above is the opening of the window. The picture is made on a tinted background of cardboard colour, the contours of objects are made with black lines, the glare of light on them is white; the shadows are indicated by black shading. With all the conventionality of the image one can feel the illusory image of space.
