Soviet artist Yuri Pimenov managed to write many paintings for his creative life. Especially tender was his painting “Tanya Pimenova”, in which he depicted his beloved and only daughter. This is not the first female portrait of the artist, painted with light even strokes, but it was this painting that caused him vivid feelings.
Tanya, depicted in the picture, sits without movement, her gaze is directed to the side. It seems that the artist caught her suddenly, unexpectedly capturing a mundane breakfast. Most likely, the girl woke up not so long ago, her thoughts still hover somewhere far away. Tanya has delicate fair skin, barely visible blush on her cheeks. The artist clearly draws the features of her face: large eyes, dark eyebrows, bright lips and a slightly snub nose. The girl's hair is short cut, light blond shade. She is dressed in a light T-shirt with white and pink stripes.
Tanya Pimenova is depicted sitting at the table during breakfast. On a table covered with a snow-white tablecloth, there is milk; on a plate with a blue border, sandwiches of white bread with jam are laid out. The berries are depicted naturally, they are round, of the same shape and cause appetite in the viewer of the picture. The girl does not eat, she looks forward thoughtfully, arms crossed in front of her.
The background of the canvas is darker than the foreground, it is depicted with a brown tint. Behind the seated girl is a wooden wall. Right behind Tanya’s head, a white and blue potholder hangs on this wall. The whole picture was painted using warm tones of paint, Pimenov wanted to make the portrait soft and gentle, because he loved his daughter very much.
This portrait is popular with viewers. After viewing the picture leaves a good impression. It is harmonious, fresh, vibrant and very vital. In the hands of a talented painter, the girl’s image began to sparkle with new radiant colors.
