Portrait of a boy in a straw hat - Ivan Fomich Khrutsky. Canvas, oil.
A wonderful portrait was painted by master brush I. Khrutsky! How much warmth and tenderness in it!
In the center of the composition is a boy with a basket of grapes. Probably someone gave him such a gift. He has a calm look and a gentle expression on his face. It seems that the child is thinking about something.
He has large brown eyes, a straight nose, full lips, a pink blush on his cheeks. He wants to sound like an adult. He is wearing a fashionable straw hat with a peacock feather. The headgear slid a little on its side, revealing its ears. The boy is childishly directly pure and sincere.
The dark background of the picture allows you to focus on the figure of the child. The artist reverently and graciously conveyed to the viewer the beauty and harmony of Russian nature in the grape brush and in the gaze of the boy. The child is dressed in a white shirt, over which a pink cloak is pleated, with long sleeves in the spirit of the past.
The brush master painted a portrait of a boy from nature. He perfectly created on canvas this wonderful story! Perhaps this child is familiar to him, and he himself handed him a basket of grapes. Ripe, green berries glisten, poured with sweet juice. The artist wanted to show the life of peasants and a boy after collecting fruits. He was always attracted to peasant life, and he enthusiastically drew interesting subjects. In the works of Khrutsky there are many similar themes that reveal the life and activities of ordinary people.
The picture is kindness, good mood and love for the world. It is pleasant to contemplate it, reflecting on the eternal. The portrait will look great in the home interior of the living room and the nursery, as well as in educational institutions.
