Yet even during this early figurative stage, an interest in geometric form transforms Russian serfs trudging through snow in ‘Morning in the Village after the Snowstorm’, 1912, into a series of Léger-like metallic planes, creating a jarring juxtaposition between the archaic way of life still predominant in Russia at the time and the modern methods by which this hardship is rendered[...]
