Col. Prince Pavel R. Avalov-Bermondt
MediumAnother portrait of this Russian aristocrat and adventurer. An almost futuristic one. He started his own campaign against the triumphant revolutionary forces. In those very same years, Boccioni and Mach had painted already, they both were killed at war. Those dynamic lines. The excitation of war. The gaze, those eyes. His Saint George’s cross exploding like a firework. Those were years when anything could happen. In life and death, in music, in visual arts. In literature. This painting is a love poem for those revolutionary years.
