A wonderful painting by the "father of Russian Futurism", David Burliuk. Oil on canvas board, 13 x 13 inches, framed, signed on the lower left. Painted with heavy impasto brushwork. Burliuk studied at the Royal Academy in Munich and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In his most active period he participated in many important avant-garde exhibitions in Kyiv, Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Munich. The appearance of the Futurists, as they called themselves, liked to wear gaudy waistcoats, sometimes painted animals on their faces, and wore wooden spoons in their lapels.

Barn in Winter Field

Lowell Ellsworth Smith was born in Canton, Ohio in 1924. He attended Miami University in Ohio (BFA) and graduated from Famous Artists Schools in Westport, Connecticut.

Print

En Route
1900-1971, British

A fine original etching with colors by Elyse Ashe Lord, this image measures 13 1/4 x 16 1/8 inches, edition of 75, hand signed and numbered in ink. Elyse Lord lived her entire life in Britain and although her work shows a strong Asian influence, she never actually traveled the continent. Her inspiration instead came from Chinese literature, artwork and her own imagination. Her unique style uses fine drypoint lines and delicate, yet vibrant colors to create images that that have a serene, almost dreamlike quality.
