The picture Traveler Lyubov Popova, who was called the Amazon of the Russian avant-garde, wrote in the heyday of her work in 1916 while traveling abroad.
Thin lines that are thoughtfully connected using straight and broken lines, triangles, squares and semicircles forming one common composition, probably due to smooth smoothing of oval and round shapes as opposed to all sharp objects. Multiple parallel and intersecting faces and planes that are intentionally superimposed on each other do not interfere with the perception of individual objects. In a picture, you can easily distinguish letters that form words, find faces, cylinders, waves on it - they talk about the commonality of all the work.
The painting, due to its chaotic fragmentation, creates the impression of dynamic movement in temporary space, as if objects were moving and would now fly out of the canvas. The scattered figures give a sense of relief, which are enhanced by the plastic execution of each line.
The work is written in a fairly restrained style that is common to all cubists. The idea of the picture is to convey the impressions of the trips of Popova herself through the chaotic image of a traveler. It would seem, why the picture needs letters and words Magazines and GAZ, but they somehow connect with the historical reality of the period of writing this work.
The traveler and a number of other works by Popova are associated with her transition to non-objective art, in which the presence of a specific form is no longer read.
