The artist is Della-Vos-Cardovskaya
Like most of Repin’s students, the artist had addicted to the portrait, gaining fame for images a. A. Akhmatova, n. WITH. Gumilyov, d. N. Kardovsky. In the “Little Woman” canvas, the portrait of her daughter Katya forms the basis of an image painted in retrospective tones. The artist placed her ten -year -old Mo del, inquisitively peering into her own surface in the surface of an old (“grandmother’s”) mirror, in the midst of the nineteenth century, among the elegant things – mild witnesses of the departed era in the sun pierced by the sun. Full of air permeated with light, the interior through the wide open windows and doors is associated with the summer solar landscape. For Russian people at the beginning of the twentieth century, this world was associated with the Turgenev era. It was perceived as the embodiment of beauty, harmony and humanity, which forever passed away, which is so subtly expressed in the verses of the cycle “gold in the azure” of Andrei Bely, in prose and. A. Bunina. Like other St. Petersburg neuromancycs, the past and modernity whimsily intertwined in the canvas, admiring the charm of youth and elegic sadness about the current time, reflections on the continuity of generations.

The daughter of the artist Ekaterina Dmitrievna Kardovskaya, a ten -year -old girl who was inquisitively considering her own reflection in an old grandmother’s mirror.
