[“…Grounding principle of Lentulov’s works in 1913-1915 that he formulated himself – “Color-Dynamics”. Architectural landscapes, portraits and still lives are pierced with active movement of colors. Their forms are divided into light, kind of running color clouts or spots, and besides this dynamics was evenly propagated over the canvas with alternation of pictorial rhythm condensations and depressions, or concentrated pictorial forms at the center, from where waves of motion were diverging to the canvas edges…Curvature and distortions of his forms are coming already not from a cubistic canon, but from a real curvature of churches and cells, built as if of haphazardly and criss-cross placed, motley painted light paper. Lentulov’s brush deals with a gay disorder of tabernacles and roofs with a natural passion, adding there a real “color festivity” as well. The last one – not only from violet dashes, cast away by heads into roofs, but also from exaggerating the natural colors of the subject: just to mention relation of the sky blue with green and pink colored decoration or shining atop an orange paper lantern of the onion-head…”(G.
