Description of the painting by Zinaida Serebryakova Still life with a jug

The artist Serebryakova, as can be seen from her painting, knows all the nuances of the artistic possibility, translating it into the subject plane, directly from the traditional chamber vision.

Thus, at first glance, in an ordinary composition of a still life, the artist manages to convey a very complex poetic background, which was originally conceived by her. Because of this, she manages to express on the canvas several such moments that she is not able to express in an epistolary or verbal style.

The picture “Still Life with a Jug”, as if says, that the whole world is quite severe, but despite this and in this harsh reality, there is a place for beauty and, if desired, you can see a large number of positive moments. Despite all the tension of the still-life, and even a certain amount of asceticism, of the entire picturesque image of the canvas, in the whole construction of the composition, obviously, notes of harmonious consistency of all the objects in the picture are seen.

This includes not only the texture itself, all sizes and volumes of objects appearing before the viewer, but also the form of the objective world, which in itself can be compared together with the defining and characteristic features of actual heroes, which make it possible to reveal the properties of inanimate matter in space.

In simple terms, each person looking at the canvas should feel the weight of the object, its severity or lightness, roughness, or vice versa, smoothness, in general, all the properties that an object may possess, depending on its structure.

Due to the fact that all these objects have a certain place in the space of the picture, one can feel a certain completeness of the picture and its significance.
