Soviet portrait Original painting / impressionism. Portrait of young girls / portrait of gymnasts / Unique work of art / handmade / ready to ship. The painting by the talented Soviet artist Victoria Kostenko “Children's Sports School” is dedicated to rhythmic gymnastics. The artist was able to accurately convey the atmosphere of that time. It seems that we are attending a lesson in the usual sports section. The main heroines of the picture are girls who are about thirteen to fourteen years old . In the center of the picture is a young gymnast in a black bathing suit. Her posture was especially proud. On the face you can read joy and pride. The canvas impresses with its special realism and incredible truthfulness. The image is as accurate as possible, and all the contours are very clear. Today, artists such a manner of writing is not so common. It really captivates and, like a magnet, draws our eyes to this unusual creation of a real master. Incredibly rich colors, each color is as bright as possible. It seems that the whole picture is illuminated by warm sunlight. When looking at this realistic creation, the audience has a really joyful feeling. He needs a frame to hold it in place, but I will let the next owner decide which type of frame and which color will look better. I like these old paintings leaning against the walls because they really don't even need a frame to add to their interior style. This beautiful painting was created in 1978 by the famous Soviet Ukrainian artist Victoria Kostenko.
