Swan lake. Backstage, oil on canvas, 40x60 cm, 2013
Bright symbolic painting made by the famous artist Larissa Akhmadeeva. In this art work, the artist talks about the hidden side of the ballet world. She depicts ballerinas not only in glory and charm, but also behind the scenes relaxing and preparing for the performance.
The main techniques that characterize the individual style of the artist are a free-flowing spot, a muffled stroke, a cursory dark line, large color spots and bold contrasts.
The theme of ballet has been always associated with Russia, so this work is not only a creative work, but also a memory of this cultural country.
