On the wooden verandah of the wing, filled with soft sunlight, Elena Musatova, the artist’s sister, bent over the hoop against the background of green and golden foliage. There are so many charms in this dark-haired head, in the face, with a rosy blush, in flowing lines, delineating a magnificent and yet simple dress.
And the girlish type itself is pretty, gentle and simple. It’s not in vain that they compare it with Pushkin’s “young lady-peasant woman”. The whole scene is full of domestic warmth, young freshness and charm.
