Lyric portrait of an unknown lady – one of the famous works of the artist. A warm look and a charming smile betrays an incomparable beauty with charm of understatement. The soft translucent look of the unknown is surrounded by ash-pink hues.
In appearance, clothing and jewelry can be judged on the ideals of beauty, tastes and fashion. After all, the portrait was painted in the noble 18th century, when brilliant ladies inspired poets and artists. In the long eyelashes, delicate features and eyes of a girl, the question is read: who can compare with me? The manner of the master dim light illuminates the face and figure, and the melting contours are almost blurred in the twilight, because of what a young woman seems airy.
The palette has a bizarre game of gentle tones and is perceived as an interpretation of the spiritual impulses of the ladies. Light gradations of tonal painting hint at the hidden but bright life of the heroine. Pink dress realistically conveys the quality of the material, and the presence of jewelry and lush hair gives it a wealthy lady.
The creative career of the portrait painter Rokotov is crowned with a series of beautiful female portraits. And each of them is unique and inimitable. Female faces appear as light vision in a color haze arising from the twilight.
Images are filled with poetic beauty and aesthetic delight. These artistic features characterize the particular style of painting by Fedor Rokotov. Moreover, the portraits are written with oval roundness, and the shape of the canvas emphasizes the rhythm of the work.
In Rokotov’s lens, the expression of the eyes and mimicry of the heroes is very important, but the master does not strive for a certain manifestation of mood, but only creates a feeling of transience of feelings and inexorable emotions. Here, the relationship between the artist and the model is very important. The sense of respect for the model and disclosure of personality can be traced to a high degree in any face of Rokotov.
