“Composition is nothing more than but an utterly logical organization of the vital forces, contained within the elements in the form of stress”.
There are no bodies on his paintings, no familiar shapes of people and animals. However, there are colours and lines like shadows of various forms: a piece of ground, some green water, a gulp of dark blue sky, sparkling sun in the corner, the inspired soul of a man. And most importantly what he wanted is harmony, created by the unity of all the fragments of shapes and lines in the painting.
