Portrait of Alexander Vorontsova by Alexei Antropov

In the parade portrait, the principles of the West European portrait are combined and the figures of stiffness, stiffness, and flatness coming from the Russian parsunal letter.

A middle-aged woman is depicted with her hands hanging aside, her head fluttering, against the background of a traditional twisted column with leaves. The artist does not hide her stoop and age. The full-blown decorative colorfulness of this portrait is striking.
