Description of the artwork «Stay in the meadow (Girl in field)»

Resting in the meadow girl Federico Zandomeneghi is an illustrative example of the proximity of the artists of the Italian school macchiaioli to the French Impressionists. The picture meadows with carefree vacationers – the typical for impressionism plot (1, 2) Color preference shaky strokes clear lines also makes these areas, and paying particular attention to the transmission of light and air.
The painting is full of light, very shining look to the increasing abundance of bright yellow flowers. We cannot tell what kind of flowers surround the girl (as, for example, and here), it flowers from the words "color": yellow, blue, pink, purple. Bright hat with a scarlet ribbon in harmony with the warm lighting and Golden girl face, cool pink with a blue tint the color of the dress creates a crisp contrast with the overall tone of the picture. Mood pictures – summer, Sunny, calm. The girl is depicted in a moment of total relaxation and oneness with a Sunny day, this Sunny day is the main subject of the picture.
