Moses Feigin is the last Russian avant-garde artist and member of the "Jack of Diamonds" group. Listed in the Guinness Book of Records. He absorbed many styles and trends in his work - fauvism, cubism, post-impressionism, expressionism, realism.

This small work created on pressboard carries the monumental features of Michelangelo's stunning frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. The figure of the violinist is located in the center of the architectural niche. The emerald scarf on her head and the large folds of the red dress create an unusually beautiful combination of colors in the picture, literally making it "sound". The complex turn of the torso and the whole arrangement of the figure resembles one of the images of the Michelangelo's Sibyls - ancient seers who often predicted disasters.
