Day 10 – Zinaida Serebriakova

Zinaida Serebriakova

Painter Zinaida Serebriakova was born on 10 December 1884 into an influential Ukrainian family. Before the revolution she was part of the anti-industrial mir iskusstva art movement and produced a series of paintings of Russian peasant life. But in 1917 her fortunes changed and she eventually moved to Paris in search of a more receptive market for her work. The painting below is an example of one of her recurring subjects, the sleeping female nude.
