Ceremonial portrait – not the most favorite genre of the artist. In this work, Kustodiyev is interested not so much in the status of work as in the model itself. No one will doubt that before us is an oriental beauty.
The cool blue color of the dress balances the eastern brightness of the model. Pale pink details match perfectly with the overall tone. The pearl necklace of the lady is in tune with the iridescent silk. Portraits on the background – detail, emphasizing the grand and solemnity of the moment.
