Mikhail Nesterov. A Portrait of Natasha Nesterova (On a Garden Bench). 1914

A Portrait of Natasha Nesterova (On a Garden Bench)

Mikhail Nesterov



A painting I saw on Bill Jones’ site got the old creative juices flowing. Hmm… a girl in blue outdoors… could I find something like that? Indeed, I could; in fact, I found TWO! By the same artist, of the same girl! Now, mind you, both of these paintings are of Nesterov’s daughter, Natalia Mikhailovna Nesterova (properly speaking, Natasha’s a diminutive; it’s never a formal given name). What do you think of these two, Bill?
