An exquisite portrait of a young girl in traditional Russian attire. Her rich dress and expensive jewels say that she is the daughter of a noble boyar. She isn’t married as her head is covered with the bright red ribbon decorated with large pearls, but not with a kokoshnik that is a typical head-dress of married women in ancient Russia. The girl depicted here embodies the Russian ideal of female beauty. Thick eyebrows and eyelashes, big blue eyes, red fleshy lips and pink cheeks have been always the standards of female beauty in Russia.
