"Peasant Woman with Buckets and Child" (1912)
Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935) was perhaps the most fertile andinfluential of the Russian post-symbolist visual artists. In the period 1909-1912, he, like Larionov and Goncharova concentrated on peasant scenes (he had grown up in the rural Ukraine), rendered in a heavy, primitivist style. In "Peasant Woman with Buckets and Child" (1912) Malevich's palate and the angularity of his faces recall the work of Paul Gauguin, but the grotesque poses and weighty bodies take primitivism even further.
