Konstantin Korovin - After the Ball



Today’s “Ball” painting is by Russian Impressionist Konstantin Korovin. In this work a woman poses next to an open window through which we’re offered a wonderful nightscape of the city. Based on her confident posture and cheerful expression, our subject obviously enjoyed a successful evening at the ball. I love the artist’s thick application of paint to render the light on her dress, as well as his contrast between the bright flowers on the windowsill and the brown tones which dominate the scene. I also like the lights windows of light visible in the distant buildings. Very nice.
