"...the uncontrollable running riot of the spontaneity of colour, already caracteristic of the early Russian avant-garde....The drive to express oneself gives way to the discovery of the truth , to the search of the absolute. This quest, like the aspiration to the material spontaneity of colour, is equally present in the conscience of the Russian avant-garde..."
