Maliavin's graduation piece "Laughter"(1898) received a strong negative reaction from critics because of its bold, abstract use of color and its raw emotionalism.

    "I appreciate your posts, through desktop and your blog app.
    The "Laughter" painting would rarely be seen if it weren't for your posting--at least from my perspective.
    It is a work purely from within the artist--it is so directly capturing an emotion, and the composition with the windmills is fantastic.
