The painting, entitled “Portrait of the songwriter of the futurist Vasily Kamensky,” was painted by Burliuk in 1916. It is interpreted as a work of art in the style of futurism with some echoes of primitivism and Fauvism.
This picture does not bear the similarity of photographic accuracy with the real Vasily Kamensky. Burliuk portrayed him as a young man of a fairly inflated athletic physique, with a naked torso. And he did not depart, from his characteristic image of an exaggerated number of eyes. So the poet Kamensky, he depicted two eyes on the right side of the face.
One name of the canvas already indicates that the image will stand out with its non-traditional manner of writing. The picture not only depicts Kamensky himself, but talks about him.
Many researchers agree that this extremely bodily, sensual, by no means ethereal heroine is the poet's muse. Kamensky’s love for flying was also probably reflected in the composition of the picture.
In the manner of writing, the picture reflects Burliuk’s passion for the work of Marc Chagall. The naked woman depicted in the upper part of the canvas, flying directly over Kamensky, recalls the numerous flying women of Chagall.
Against the background of the picture, a peculiar landscape is located across the right side of the canvas. It depicts two palm trees of brown color, a small house with the inscription "inn" and a section of railway tracks along which a steam locomotive with one wagon moves. The rest of the background space of the picture is painted with stains of brown, green and a whole palette of red colors.
To date, the painting by David Burliuk "Portrait of the songwriter of the futurist Vasily Kamensky" is in Russia at the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.
