Larisa Kral, a Croatian artist born in St. Petersburg, invited a group of ten St. Petersburg artists to take part in the plenair in Croatia. It is Supetar, the city situated on the island of Brač, where the “Window to Croatia” was created . The main figure of the canvas is Julia Bobrova who is the artist’s friend and muse. She stands at the background of the terracotta wall with the window with the shutters of an unusual dark blue color. The elegant figure of the woman looks very delicate and fragile because of her crossed arms, the thin silk blouse trembling in the wind, and the watchful look of her beautiful eyes.
The Exhibition “Window to Croatia – the exhibition in the wake of the plenair” was held in the Exhibition Center of Artists Union in St. Petersburg (Oct. 24th, 2017- Nov. 1st, 2017). The picture was noted by numerous compliments and took its rightful place on show.
