    The first painting seems more neoclassical and less realistic. The family trio “Summer”, among other things, very nice, it is more realistic. Beautiful is the dress worn by mother, very light and delicately decorated with flowers. The drawing of the nude female standing, I like a little ‘less, perhaps because the bent leg rests on a wedge of wood. However, I do not see a great harmony in the form of that model.
