Composition IV

Composition IV is a mixed of swerling and soaring lines.

The painting is divided strongly down the centre by thick black, and vertical lines. On the left, a violent motion is expressed by sharp, jagged, and tangled lines. On the right hand side are calm emotion using sweeping forms, and colour harmonies.

The dividing lines are really two swords held by red hatted cossacks. Next to them a third white bearded cossack leaned against his purple sword. They stand before a blue mountain with a castle on top.

On the lower left two boats are depicted and a rainbow. Above them are two horseback cossacks in battle. In the lower right two priests watch two people lying down the the hill.
