The artist is Malyutin
The portrait is also executed using the pastel technique, but solved in a different, more emotional way. Binders are depicted in a free pose, putting their hands in his pockets, in an unbuttoned jacket. The artist subtly caught the complacency of the model, conveyed a slight smile, a cheerful squint of the eyes of this cheerful and artistic person. A color built on combinations of black costume and butterfly, a striped shirt, vertical background, enhances the energy of the image. (IN. Prince.).
