Victoria Kostenko on her canvas “Victory Day” depicted the Victory Day. The author gave the foreground of the picture to the image of the mother. This old woman stands among a large number of joyful and cheerful people, holding a photograph of her son who has not returned from the war. Her gaze is filled with irreparable sadness. She realizes that expecting a son is already pointless, there is almost no chance of his return. But the mother’s heart does not want to believe, it clings to every opportunity, one chance out of a hundred. The mother's grief is enormous. But the canvas still carries a life-affirming force. The tragedy of a woman is endless, but hope dominates in her soul.
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.
