Autumn bouquet - Ilya Efimovich Repin. 111 x 65 cm Although the picture is called "Autumn Bouquet", in fact it is not a still life, but a portrait. It depicts the artist’s daughter Vera Ilyinichna Repin against the backdrop of the landscape - recently acquired by the artist of the estate Zdravnevo. In the background of the picture is a deep perspective with a far-flung young orchard still preserving green leaves on the branches.
The mystery is the very fact of the popularity of this literary and cartoon character.

The Communion of the Apostles - Albrecht Altdorfer. 42 x 32.5 cm The creative work of the painter and engraving master Albrecht Altdorfer, the brightest representative of the Danube School, focused mainly on religious subjects.

Girl with a watering can - Pierre-Auguste Renoir. 100x215; 73 During his career, Renoir painted a lot of paintings, where the main role was given to girls. It’s enough to recall the portraits of Romain Laco and Mademoiselle Legrand, the paintings “Walk”, “Girl with Jumping Rings”, “Pink and Blue”, etc. However, this work is striking in its spontaneity and in the absence of any steadfastness which, without any doubt, would steal this spontaneity and the charm of momentary.
Shipwreck - Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky. Oil on canvas. The sea can be admired endlessly, it is always different: shimmering like a precious blue stone on a sunny summer day or flaming in the rays of sunset, lead gray on a cloudy day or almost black in a thunderstorm. Strong gusts are replacing the calm, and now huge water shafts soar where there was a calm mirror surface just recently.
Rose Wreath Festival - Albrecht Durer. 162 x 194 cm The colorful multi-figure painting “Feast of the Rosary” by Albrecht Dürer was a significant event in the artist’s creative life - society finally saw in him not only a talented successful engraver, but also a virtuoso painter. At the beginning of the 1500s, Dürer made a trip to Italy, getting to know local craftsmen, whose art at that time was recognized as reference.
