Chorus
Description
Composition in ochre (predominant), earthy, gray, blue, green and black. Rough texture result of its support of the work. Composition representing choir of about twenty people singing, occupying the center 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 diagonal on the right to on the left and front to back. The figures are defined by color area; they have represented only facial features and darker areas around the head or about half of the faces suggest the outline of the head. The on the right two figures hold a sort of long pattern that is all filled with dots vertically symmetrically. The second figure embraces the first by the shoulders, looking up fallen hand. The two on the left figures suggest looking at the agenda and these are seen the on the left hand, one in his chest and the other down. All four wear long robes and have their feet represented by colored areas. Behind this front row to see if the rest of the rest of the choir group forming sort of triangle with apex to the bottom, with only the heads suggested by light and dark areas dividing the faces in half. Background geometrized for irregular shapes that blend with the geometrics of the figures of the first row, suggesting overlapping plans and shadow effects.
