Catalogue Note

In the present lot the artist has caught a lyrical, intimate moment: a young family with a baby on a balcony at dusk. The sparse colour palette, impressionistic contours, monumentalised forms and highlighting of the essential at the expense of detail – these are the main features of Goltsev’s painting.
