Catalogue Note

The decorative attire of the regions of the Russian Empire was beautifully recorded in a number of Makovsky's paintings, including Ukrainian Girl (1882), a smaller oil on panel offered at Sotheby's in June 2008, which details the same white shirt, bright necklaces and headgear and brown pinafore as in the present lot. This work is a particularly cheerful example of Makovsky's peasant children portraits and comes from a collection which also contained an early still life by Valentin Serov.
