Here comes the cavalry

Red Cavalry Riding, by the painter Kazimir Malevich, who was ethnically Polish, born in Kiev, and a citizen of the Soviet Union. Malevich grew up in various Ukrainian villages with minimal exposure to art, but grew up to become one of the most important painters of his generation. He also made the decors for a play by Mayakovsky, no stranger to this blog.
