Nicholas Milioti - Arrival to the Ball



Today’s selection is by Russian painter Nicholas Milioti, whose work appears largely inspired by Impressionism. Viewing this piece, the artist’s style makes the subject matter somewhat challenging to distinguish, however it would appear that a woman has been delivered to the ball in a sedan chair carried by two men. She is greeted by a woman holding a basket of flowers, and her sedan is followed by two other women in the background. Milioti’s use of color gives the scene an almost hallucinogenic quality, and his application of paint makes scenery appear hazy and unusual. If this execution is an indication of the sedan rider’s mindset, and I don’t think she’s going to remember much of this evening.
