Sinister

The artist is Roerich

In the sketch for this picture, an old city was depicted, surrounded by log walls with sentinel towers, in the foreground of which rains foreshadowing the prey from the battlefield. Roerich changed the composition after a conversation with Arkhip Kuindzhi, one of his teachers. The artist removed the upper part with the city background. Her compositional, emotional and semantic dominant became huge black birds, personifying evil.
