If you carefully look at how thoroughly and thriftily all the details are drawn, it becomes clear how much the author loves what he paints, and even a person who is not too knowledgeable in painting involuntarily begins to sympathize with a small child. The artist perfectly reproduces the complex angles of the outlines of a little boy. This picture is an excellent example of the Russian school of realism. 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.
