    The critic, Charmion von Wiegand wrote 'When one looks at Burliuk's pictures one is dissolved in a flaming bath of color encrusted on canvases, jewel-like in their hard lustrous impasto, an impasto that evokes the molten gold and jewels of the ancient ikons...Burliuk's palette has the organic rhythm of autumnal leaves dissolving in their death into a symphony of their component colors.' (K. Dreier, Burliuk, New York, 1944, p. 153.)
