Encouraged by the Berlin gallery owner and futurist writer Ruggero Vasari, Niklāvs Strunke travelled to Italy. Its atmosphere imbued his style with the clear order of the Latin cultural tradition. Simultaneously depicted in this original composition is the figure of a man going through a door and beside him, a small table and a solitary light bulb in a half-empty room. Alongside the geometric forms of Cubism, the artist has employed the principles of the metaphysical trend current in Italian 1920s painting that were oriented towards the world of subconscious visions. Whereas the Italians reflected the impression of surreal illusions by using the forms of antique art, Strunke remained faithful to his usual Cubism.
