Burliuk, D. D. Futurist Poet V. V. Kamensky, Portrait. 1917

Notes:
Portrait of the Futurist Poet V. V. Kamensky. This painting of the Futurist poet Vasily Kamensky displays both the characteristics of Neoprimitivism in the icon-like simplicity of its composition, and of Futurism in the rays of color which suggest dynamism and movement. One of the artist's best known works, it is inscribed in Russian: "King of Poets, song champion, Futurist Vasily Vasilievich Kamensky. 1917. Russian Republic." (00425)
