DAVID BURLIUK  1882-1967


Size:  12 x 17

Medium:  Watercolor

Signed:  Lower right


In many of his works, he incorporated two or more styles in a single painting. Also, Burliuk had a habit of repeating some of his early works, often 20-30-40 years later, as he memorized many of the paintings that he did whilst still in Russia and couldn't bring with him to the USA.

Slightly confusing for a laymen is that for some reason, Burliuk dated those new versions with the date that he painted the originals.

Burliuk was unique in that he was one of the rare artists who introduced many different styles into a single work with the intention of creating a look and composition that is absolutely balanced.
