Over the years, Konstantin Makovsky 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 painted it in a completely uncharacteristic manner for him.
The painting is very bright, painted in the style of Dutch painting of the 17th century. The Dutch masters’ depiction of bright bouquets against a dark background remained a role model for several centuries.
The still life is made with high quality and detail. The sun glare, the play of light and shadow, the refraction of the image by glass from which the vase is made are carefully traced.
The artist paid great attention to the realism of the image. The accuracy and truthfulness of the image – that was the main task of the artist when writing this picture.
