Konstantin Makovsky over the years has developed his own recognizable style despite the fact that he worked in different genres. The peculiarity of his painting “Still Life” is precisely in the fact that the master wrote it in a completely uncharacteristic manner.
The picture is very bright, written in the style of Dutch painting of the XVII century. The image of bright bouquets by Dutch masters against a dark background remained a role model for several centuries.
Still life is made very high quality and detail. Carefully traced the sun glare, the play of light and shadow, the refraction of the image by the glass from which the vase is made.
The artist paid much attention to the realism of the image. Accuracy and truthfulness of the image – that was the main task of the artist when writing this picture.
