Canvas and oil served as materials for the creation of Repin's work “Autumn Bouquet”, the dimensions of the canvas are 111 by 65 cm. Currently, “Autumn Bouquet” adorns the State Tretyakov Gallery.
In the picture, the artist depicted his eldest daughter Vera. At the time of writing this picture, Repin was very interested in painting in the open air, devoted much time to painting landscapes, which could not but affect portraits. Nature is an integral part of the portrait: a bouquet of wild flowers in the hands of the heroine, flowers on her clothes, a landscape in the background emphasize the femininity and tenderness of the girl.
Upon closer inspection of the canvas, two of the most positive sensations arise: a sense of peace and a sense of life. Everything is aimed at conveying the unity of the character with nature: both color, and pose, and look, and the girl’s clothes, and composition. The bouquet in the hands is, as it were, a point in the compositional solution, linking the female image and the beauty of Russian nature.
Everything in the girl’s attire suggests that she is the daughter of the artist: the clothes are tastefully selected, and on her head is a large brown beret. It is on a beret that you can guess that in the yard it is autumn and it has already become cool. The girl’s face is thoughtful, it looks clean and gentle, her hair is neatly tidy. The daughter looks directly at her father, seems ready to say something to him.
Her features cannot be called correct and beautiful, but at the same time, there is something attractive in her. Probably, this is youth and at the same time unspoiled, tenderness, modesty.
The girl resembles this same bouquet with buttercups and cornflowers, which she holds in her hands. This bouquet is already starting to dry up, autumn nature is already dying and losing its brightness and greenery, and the girl is just starting to bloom and blossom. Probably, it was this contrast that the artist wanted to convey.
