Ilya Ivanovich Mashkov studied with famous artists of that time - Korovin and Serov. With an exceptional ability to color, the artist painted magnificent, vibrant and expressive still lifes. In his paintings, Mashkov actively used textured and color techniques, with which he conveyed the existence of specific objects in their own created environment.
His "Still Life" is made in the folk style, while the painter shows us the real, lively, and not fictional beauty of the objects of the picture, focusing on the "corporeality" of the gifts of nature portrayed by him. He takes the natural ideality of an object and brings it to perfection, seeking to reveal this beauty in its entirety. Fruits and vegetables on the canvas shine with health and naturalness.
The background for a still life is a luxurious golden fabric painted with rather large figures of people in oriental dresses. True, these people do not have faces, but, apparently, this is not so important for the artist. So, against this background, in ceramic dishes and glass vases are a variety of ripe fruits - blue-black large grapes, ruddy red-yellow peaches, light pink quince fruits, blue and red ripe plums. A few peaches rolled out of the dish onto the table.
The brightness and color saturation of the fruit is somewhat exaggerated - so the artist wanted to reflect the ripeness and health of the fruit. Mashkov also used deliberately large strokes and an increase in the size of the fruit to achieve a sense of their fullness and roundness. The color scheme of "Still Life" is bright and expressive.
The carefully written out corporeality of fruits, their healthy appearance and attractiveness clearly illustrate the artist's attitude to the manifestations of nature, namely, the chanting of the diversity and richness of its forms.
