Zinaida Serebriakova

Zinaida Serebriakova is a fascinating figure.  A beauty in her own right, she could’ve modeled for other painters had she chosen to do so, but instead she entered art school and studied beneath Ilya Repin, one of Russia’s most renowned painters and sculptors, becoming one of the first female painters in Russia to achieve national (and ultimately international) acclaim.  As with many female painters of the period, her work often focused on children and family life, particularly her own.  Below you can see a self-portrait of Serebriakova, painted when she was around 25.
