Description

These two long poems by Aleksei Kruchenykh, "The Hermits" and "A Hermit Woman", use surrealistic images to explore the conscious and repressed desires of holy men. Kruchenykh delights in shocking his readers with erotic and blasphemous imagery. Goncharova's pictures reflect the icons of the church and popular religious prints which she was studying at this time.
