Girlfriends. 1967. Oil, canvas. Art museum of Moldavian SSR, Kishinev. Soviet artist Vilgelmina Dmitriyevna Zazerskaya (born 17 May 1927 in Leningrad, USSR)

In the painting “Girlfriends” (1967), the artist shows the desire to poetize life, to reflect it in joyful and sonorous images. The motley, cheerful background, the bright outfit of the girls expressively emphasize the tenderness of their faces, in which kindness, soft perversity and cordial clarity shine. Dense textured painting, reminiscent of folk embroidery, bright ornamentation create a festive, song sounding canvases.
