Singing School
Description
Composition in ochre (predominant), earthy, blue, gray, rose and green. Rough texture result of its support of the work. Composition representing choir of about twenty people singing, occupying the center of the area of ​​the composition, which is all geometrized in contrasting areas. In the foreground, we see the first row of the chorus formed by four figures standing opposite side by side; the queue is slightly diagonally from the left to the right and front to back. The figures are defined by color area; they have represented only facial features and dark areas around the heads suggest part of the face contour. The two on the left figures hold a kind of long agenda that is all filled with small black lines vertically symmetrically. The second figure embraces the first by the shoulders, looking up his fallen on the right hand. The two figures seem to look on the right in the direction of the agenda. All four wear long robes and have their feet represented by colored areas. Behind this front row to see if the rest of the choir group forming sort of triangle with apex to the bottom, with only the heads suggested by clear areas on the left and darker on the right. Background geometrized for irregular shapes that blend with the geometrics of the figures of the first row, suggesting overlapping plans and shadow effects.
