An equestrian has mounted a rearing horse. The cubistically fragmented image consists of dynamic triangles and dark, muted colours and only slowly does the image of horse and rider surface. There is hardly any rendering of a landscape except for the starry sky and a red lightning bolt. The artwork in the collection of Norrköpings Konstmuseum, is a fine example of his own take on cubism, futurism and expressionism, merging various central European styles while creating his own expression. Furthermore, painted during World War I, it is a work bringing out the torments of contemporary Europe in an existentialist and archaic way.
