And this is a portrait of Princess Margarita Ivanovna Dolgorukaya. Dolgorukaya – a strong and restrained woman with large and sharp features of an intelligent person. There is no trace of languid dreaminess in it. She sits upright, with her head held high and calmly folded on her knees with her hands.
The contours of the figure are clearly delineated, the background is not the blueness of the landscape. but the plane of the wall. With great skill, the artist creates an image of a woman, restrained. strict and decisive.
