Self Portrait by Zinaida Yevgenyevna Serebriakova and female figure paintings, many of her daughter.
Link to Gandalf's Gallery page about the artist.
A Romanian page about the artist: Cinabru.
Partial translation of the page:
Zinaida Yevgenyevna Serebriakova was born in Ukraine, in 1884, in a family of artists. A ramas in istoria artei mai ales pentru portretele sale, dar si pentru scenele de gen si peisaje. She remained in the history of art especially for portraits, but for genre scenes and landscapes. Remarkable are the works - including nudes - dedicated to female beauty in all its aspects.
