Tropinin is one of those artists whose work was influenced by the trends of such a trend as sentimentalism. This direction was supposed to reflect the cult of nature and sincere emotions and human feelings in the works. The artist was inspired by nature and believed that the real muse is nature, which can teach a person to look at things with different eyes. The artist was always attracted by genuine feelings and a pure soul, so more and more children became the heroes of his picture. It was in children that the artist saw a source of inspiration and the creation of beauty.
Tropinin saw all this beauty in children, portraying them with birds, various toys and musical instruments. And one of such warm and sincere pictures is “The Girl with the Doll”, which conveys to the viewer a cozy atmosphere and a child holding a toy. The artist intentionally uses such a technique and distracts the viewer from the character of the child, creating a generalized image of children. The famous Russian artist Tropinin portrayed a child who enjoys the moment and the joy of playing with a doll. Looking at this picture, a smile appears on the face from how warm, lively and radiant this work is. The viewer can enjoy the beautiful and sweet scene, during which the character of the child manifests.
In the picture, the artist showed a beautiful little girl, in whose hands is a doll, and in the background are the rest of the toys of a beautiful baby. Warmth and home furnishings - this is the goal that the artist sought very successfully.
