Two bathers.

Painting, 1940, 42×60 cm

Description of the artwork «Two bathers.»

A special role in Shmarov's life and work was played by his admiration for female beauty. Called the "Russian Renoir" by his contemporaries, Shmarov, like the famous Frenchman, saw in women a mystery, felt their elusive and attractive power over the hearts.
The painter's lively, impressionistic brushstroke emphasizes the ephemeral nature of the subject. Who are these mysterious bathing beauties full of tenderness? Are they young girls resting from their labors, or mermaids, heroines of Russian folk tales?
