The paintings of the artist Boris Kustodiev are not difficult to recognize by his unique style of their performance. At work, he used soft, but bright colors, applied whitewash, as a result of which his canvases were remembered for a specific color scheme and unusual compositional techniques.
Kustodiev was very fond of depicting simple and bright scenes from human life: workdays, public holidays, or simply nice days. Often, in his paintings, the author described real moments from his own life. The canvas called "Lilac" is one of them.
Before the viewer's eye, a picture of a clear day falls at the end of spring. The sun's rays generously endow the earth, warming and lighting everything around. Lush green grass, a wooden house and a hedge, as well as a sprawling tall bush of lilacs fill the air with unique clean aromas that are found only in villages. From the blooming curly flowers of lilacs, it is clear that the action takes place in early May.
A beautiful young woman comes out of the ajar gate, holding a little daughter in her arms. Such a wonderful day is the time to walk with a child in nature. A snow-white dress with a fluffy skirt, a collar and sleeves gives it the image of sublimity and grace. The woman's thick blond hair was pulled up into a neat bundle.
The baby, who is on her mother’s arms, is also dressed in a lush, light dress with blue stripes. A white bonnet protects her head from the occasionally scorching rays of the spring sun.
The family was a great happiness in the life of the artist Kustodiev. On this canvas, in 1906, he portrayed his beloved wife Julia along with their little daughter. Perhaps that is why so many touching emotions are embedded in the picture. Feelings of tenderness, care and warmth will certainly begin to be transmitted to the viewer looking at the picture.
