Painting by the French painter Nicolas Lancre “Youth”. The size of the painting is 34 x 45 cm, oil on canvas. The girl on the right side of the picture, very piquantly fixing stockings, was given the attention of a young man who had a gallant conversation with her.
The artist focuses the attention of the viewers in the picture on the other girl in the center of the room, decorated with flowers with the help of her friends, who admires herself in the mirror. The painting “Youth” is the second canvas in a series of four Lancre canvases, which represent the four ages of human life – “Childhood”, “Youth”, “Maturity” and “Old Age”. Classes of young people in the picture of Nikola Lancre “Youth” can also be recognized as games, only subject to more loving goals and desire for love passions.
