David Davidovich Burliuk (Russian, 1882-1967), oil on board still life painting, depicts vase of flowers set against a darkening sky, with choppy sea in the background. Signed "Burliuk" lower right. Unframed. 16" x 12". Provenance: ex-Lyzon Gallery, Nashville. Biography: Born into a privileged class of Russian Society, David Burliuk became a central figure in the history of the Russian avant-garde movement as an accomplished poet, art critic, and exhibition organizer. He studied at the Kazan School of Fine Arts in 1898, then in Odessa, Moscow, Munich, and in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, however, as a breaker of artistic tradition, he found himself expelled from the Moscow Institute in 1911. His early works were Fauve-like and were exhibited with the Blue Riders in Munich. With the advent of World War I, he left Russia and traveled for four years. He moved to America in 1922 and settled on Long Island where he continued to paint until his death there in 1967. Source: Michael David Zellman, 300 Years of American Art. CONDITION: Minor wear to paint along outer edges of board, overall excellent condition.
