Description of the painting by Zinaida Serebryakova Girls at the piano

In the works of Zinaida Serebryakova there are many children’s portraits. The world of childhood is one of the important topics for the artist. Serebryakova loved to write small children, since they are open, natural, and skillfully express love and interest in the world around them.

In particular, she loved to paint portraits of her children, of which she had four: 2 boys and 2 girls. “Girls at the piano” in 1922 – a portrait of the daughters of Serebryakova, Kati and Tata. The painting was painted 2 years before the artist’s urgent departure to Paris. And if Katya was able to soon go after her mother on the road, Tata had to spend several years before meeting with her family. But while Zinaida Serebryakova is in Russia, and she often draws her children. They constantly surround their mother and still do not suspect that they will soon be parting for many years.

Nature has given them a beautiful and noble appearance that has been noted more than once by people around them. Next to the piano is Katya, the owner of golden, curly hair and a gentle face. Tata is sitting at the piano. The girl has brown hair and dark, radiant, eyes that are so similar to the mother.

The picture is made in golden-blue shades. There is a blue robe on the girls, and the piano seems to play along with the color and give the blue highlights. Tata’s fingers lightly touch the keys. It seems that the girl is about to play the instrument. Both girls’ gaze at the viewer is accidental: the mother drawing them seemed to distract the girls from the process, and for a moment they decided to look in her direction.
