Zinaida Serebriakova, 1915, The Harvest
At Breakfast by Zinaida Serebriakova, 1914. I adore these angelic faces! I would imagine these are relatives of Zinaida, as the little girl bares an uncanny resemblance to her self portraits. Could this in fact be a study of Zinaida’s family when she was growing up? She did have two brothers after all. If anyone knows, please enlighten me!
Self Portrait at the Dressing Table by Zinaida Serebriakova, 1909. I love Serebriakova’s knowing look towards the viewer .. or technically to herself in the mirror! She uses white to highlight her skin, the candle on the left and the iridescent pearls, both on her necklace and on the end of her hair pins.
