Dmitriy Salov is well known Ukrainian portraitist and still life, a landscape painter. He works in the European realist tradition and he is a master of the treatment of light and shadow in a painting. Portrait of a Little Girl with Grapes, by Dmitriy Salov is very expressive, amazing artwork. Skilfully selected colours, traced lines, the location of light and shadow-everything speaks of the artist’s deep understanding of this image. The handling of the colours is extraordinary fluid and vibrant. The sweet features of the face, the swelling of the lips, chubby baby hands with grapes, give her a depiction of tenderness and warmth. Especially expressive are the girl’s huge eyes. The child’s gaze is intelligent, serious and a little surprised. In the image of the girl everything is harmonious: and clothes, and look and grapes. The painting is in excellent condition.
