Working mainly on the problematics of abstract painting, the artist often turned to figurative art during the 1950s, adding social subjects to his creative work. In such art pieces, including the painting Display Window, the author strived to fix the ordinary fragments of a modern city as if seen in passing. In such compositions, Zlotnikov revealed the true realities of life, in contrast to the joyfully staged scenes of Soviet life that were widespread in the art of the day. The simple display window of a hat store provides an attractive pretext for his painting. The forms, colour and rhythm conveyed with all the details on the canvas by the artist’s unique expressive brushstrokes are full of special charm. This unpretentious composition turns out to be an unusual document that reveals the true image and characteristic details of urban life.
