Young woman reading (1919). Sergei Vinogradov (Russian, 1869-1938). Oil on canvas.
Vinogradov took part in the creation of the “Union of Russian Artists” in 1903. It united Russian painters of the beginning of the 20th century and, being based on the achievements of 19th century Russian art in landscape and genre, enriched the country’s painting with a new understanding of color and light that was close to Impressionism.
Reading is a thing of beauty, and a fantastic subject for work of art.
