Zinaida Serebriakova (revisited)

Zinaida Yevgenyevna Serebriakova (née Lanceray) was a Ukrainian painter who was active in the early 20th century. Like most Ukrainian painters of the time, she is often referred to as a Russian painter because Ukraine was under the Russian Empire at that point.

I first featured her on Lines and Colors in 2014. Though she also painted landscapes, interiors and a number of figurative subjects, she was best known for her portraits.

Even today, they look fresh and immediate, and many have the feeling of being casually unfinished. She painted her own children many times. She also painted a number of self portraits, several of which feature her children (image above, bottom).
