Alexandrovich--Landscape.jpg

Burliuk--Steamboat.jpg
We see a steamboat on a river, its importance shown via a stack located at the center of Burliuk's composition and by how much space the boat itself occupies--seemingly the width of the river. The watercolor is drawn in a neo-primitive style,…

Braverman--Workers of the World.jpg
