Painting The Snow Maiden, Mikhail Vrubel, 1890

The character of the heroine is revealed by her eyes – large, surprised, ready for new, previously unknown impressions, knowledge, adventures. An interestingly executed outfit of the Snow Maiden. The master chose an unusual technique, depicting in relief the cut of a magic fur coat from unknown material.
The artist depicted the heroine at the time it appeared in front of people.

The heroine is a little confused, although she is confident enough. A slight, subtle smile on her lips.

Description of the picture:

Snow Maiden – Mikhail Vrubel. 1890. Watercolor, gouache on paper. 25×17 The artist was commissioned with costumes for the opera Snegurochka. The main character was especially interested in the master.

Despite the sketchiness of the work, in which the costume was to be the main one, the author could not resist working on the background and details, even sketchy.

A winter forest stands behind the heroine’s wall. At her feet squirrel sits, the only escort of the heroine who dared to leave the dense forest thicket for a minute.
