Complex Presentiment:

Half-Figure in a Yellow Shirt

1932: State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg

In Malevich's Metaphysical style, the picture conveys nobility and a harmony with the world in a timeless and (by suppressing particularising details) universal figure. Highly stylised and simplified, the figure suggests an ascetic, a monk perhaps - who is both tied to the earth and related to the universe and all its mysteries.
