The heroic essence of the picture now chanced on its sufficient embodiment. In its compositional ambitions, in measurement and scope, the portrait of Yermolova stocks a detailed affinity with the portrait of Morozov (p. a hundred) mentioned above. the 2 works invite comparability: the slim, vertically elongated canvases are approximately equivalent in top, with a virtually exact correlation among determine and pictorial floor; either photos are exceptional by means of modest color schemes and a predominance of gray tones.
