A growing predilection for figurativeness can be noted in Kazimir Malevich’s later works and above all his portraits. His painterly devices are reminiscent of the Renaissance frescoes The artist underlines the reticent expression of the faces, the majestic poses and the unusual gesture of the hands, more typical of the depiction of a saint in an icon than a self-portrait. All these details are, however, deliberate and premeditated, leading us away from the characteristics of a concrete personality towards a generalized and synthetic image.
