In the work The four musicians, we encounter a restrained expressionistic approach which is marked by solidly organised composition, a limited colour range, and an emotional charge. In spite of the fact that Ikonomidi never went to study in Europe, Cézanne's influences in this work bear witness to a broader education and knowledge. The planes and masses have been distributed in the space in a way which is indifferent to traditional perspective. The figures all come into the foreground and only the colour values determine their position in the space, by a clear deployment of the ochre, the blue, and the green.
