This painting is one of the greatest works of Serov's early period in which he concentrated on spontaneity of perception of the model and nature. In the development of light and colour, the complex harmony of reflections, the sense of atmospheric saturation, and the fresh picturesque perception of the world, there appeared the features of early Russian Impressionism.
