Liza (Nataliya Kurguzova-Miroshnik, no date (2000s?)

I chose this painting to compare with On A Festival Day because I find that the facial expressions of both young women are similar. In short, young women have changed not at all, which I find reassuring news, indeed. Of course, the clothing and hair styles have changed, but, such things are only superficial, and no change at all, if one thinks of it.

Another reason I chose this work is because “Liza” is how one says “Lisa” in Russian. Lisa, “this one’s for you”.

Nataliya Kurguzova-Miroshnik is married to an artist of equal talent, Konstantin Miroshnik. I’ll have to use some of his work as “contrasts” this week, as well!
