Giovannina, sitting on the windowsill


The artist is Chistyakov

This portrait, written in Italy, against the backdrop of a panoramic landscape that is visible from the dissolved window, is a magnificent example of the work of an outstanding artist-pedagogue, for the middle of the 19th century, a very innovative interpretation of the model and the entire objective environment, which is noticeable even in choosing an unusually elongated linen format horizontally. In addition, the work is imbued with an amazingly subtle lyrical mood.
