One of the best examples of still life in the style of cubofuturism. A subtle and thoughtful combination of broken and straight lines, triangles, and segments of a circle forms a complete composition. The variety of intersecting faces and planes superimposed on each other does not interfere with perceiving specific objects, such as a violin, musical notebook, table plane, playing cards.
Despite numerous fractures and intersecting planes, the picture is perceived holistically, possibly due to the fact that they are all enclosed in a general shape of an oval that smoothes out all apparent angles and sharpness.
It is rather an associative image of a subject popular in still lifes. The beauty of this picture is that the violin is a reason, a pretext for creating a complete image of harmony in one’s own soul.
