Bullfighting by Vladimir Bekhteev

The full energy of the motion picture of Vladimir Bekhteev’s “Bullfight” is marked by the clear influence of Cubism. Among the intricately intersecting rhythmic arcs, overlapping one another and translucent colored planes and cube-shaped shapes, stands out the elegant black silhouette of the horse, pierced by a powerful blow of the bull, and the torero figures aspiring to it.

A lot of time spent in Munich Bekhteev the process of his creative formation was strongly influenced by German expressionism. It is clearly noticeable in the artist’s early work, when the plastic beauty and inner tension of his romantic visions were embodied in canvases marked by artistic ease and inimitable sophistication.
