The picture can be attributed to the cycle of peasants, which is one of the best works of the artist. Before the viewer appears a symbolic portrait of a man. Malevich in his work sought to develop the boundaries of traditional art. The cycle "Peasants" was to be presented as a graphic representation of everyday life, all the difficulties and hardships of the lower class. The more the artist learned the tradition of the people, the more he sought to draw the attention of society to the needs of the peasants, but not through pity, but their fortitude.
The portrait gathered the best qualities of a person. It is the colors that help to understand the depth of the image:
Red color initially personifies the hard work of people, the internal struggle and conflicts with the highest ranks. A reddish brown hue indicates a connection to the ground. Immediately there is an association with work on arable land, folk rites of fertility.
The background selected green color, which harmonizes the human soul with nature. The proximity of the peasant to her, natural beauty, both physical and spiritual.
The geometrically located nose with three colors shows the versatility of nature, which is exposed as a yellow color of soreness, blue - purity and unusualness, white in the middle - harmony.
The presence of a black shade shows the doubts that are in every personality. It also expresses a short life and high mortality arising from the lack of drugs for the disease. Meeting with severe obstacles to self-realization and self-development. Black and white are evenly distributed in the picture, which creates the Asian symbolism of yin-yang.
The wide forehead and close proximity of the eyes depicts a person who is not engaged in high sciences, but works hard for the benefit of the family and society. A high neck, stretching up, shows the desire for new things and the willingness to learn the world.
