Interior painting is quite an interesting and modern direction of artistic creation. This branch interested not only pupils of Venetsianov, but also other artistic geniuses. However, the painting by the Russian artist F. Tolstoy – “Family Portrait” was recognized as the real pinnacle of the interior genre of painting.
Fedor Petrovich is a glorified Russian creator, a true master of his craft. Among his many works are talented sculptures, beautiful medals, works of art, paintings and portraits. In his famous work “Family Portrait,” the author was able to apply all the skills of an artist-jeweler. Despite the fact that the work is quite large, Tolstoy managed to pay attention to every detail.
And all of them are done to the finest detail, as if the artist did not paint a picture with brush strokes, but worked on it as if on a jewelry medal. All these nuances, a subtle game of color watercolors, a well-thought miniature made his work one of the best of its kind.
The composition of the picture is quite simple and at the same time very strict, all the little things and interior details are thought out by the creator in advance. Furniture, painting, dog on the floor, color combinations of walls and floor. The contemplator of the work as if moves into the interior of the picture through the rooms.
In the balance of this movement, the artist paints a picture with deep night landscapes, while daytime sunlight spreads in the living room. Ancient ancient sculptures, placed along the wall of the room, as if frozen in time. They echo the relaxed postures of the inhabitants of the house, gathered at the table for a lunch meal. By the way, as characters, Tolstoy depicted his own members of seven. All the details in this picture are made in a classic style: a vase, a chandelier, clothes of characters.
