A native of the peasant milieu - Vasily Maximov devoted his whole life to depicting the life of ordinary Russian farmers. Portraits occupy a special place in the author's art gallery. There are images of old men and women, women and men, and especially village children.
The painting "Girl" was painted by the artist in 1866, when he leaves the Academy of Arts and lives in Shubino on the estate of P.P. Golenishcheva-Kutuzova. Here he observes the life of peasants, “stuffs” his hand and develops his own style of authorship. At this time, he comes to the decision to draw "living" people.
The author’s inexperience is not felt in creating the image of a peasant girl. Skillfully selected paints, drawn lines, details, the location of light and shadow - everything speaks of the artist’s deep understanding of this image.
A teenage girl was painted by a master after some activity, during which she was distracted by a phrase that interested her. We see the face of a smart, sensible girl, adult beyond her years. In fact, she is still a child, but in her expression she does not feel childish. On the contrary, there are fatigue, experienced trials, the severity of work and daily life.
Especially expressive are the huge bulging eyes of the girl. The child’s look is smart, serious, pensive. There is an interest in what is happening outside the picture. When you look at a girl, you imagine that she is sitting with you in the room and is listening carefully to what you are telling her. But at the same time, she perceives your speech somewhat condescendingly, because she knows more about life than you.
The seriousness, concentration of facial expressions, lack of a smile on puffy shifted lips indicate some concerns of the teenager. Perhaps she was distracted from carrying out a responsible task. We do not see the girl’s hands, but we feel that she does not spend time in idleness.
In this portrait, the artist presents a lively image of a girl.
