LOT NOTES
This painting exemplifies one of Burliuk's most interesting tendencies as a mature artist: his re-imagining of his futurist compositions of the 1910s, for which he was so well known in Russia. Burliuk, ever the humorist, would purposefully date his new futurist compositions with an earlier date. The present work is closely related to an epynomous painting in the The National Art Museum of Ukraine, Kyiv.

CONDITION
Observed in frame, the work is in overall excellent original condition. Canvas slightly loose on the stetcher. Inspection under UV light reveals no apparent signs of restoration.
