Self Portrait with Scarf, Zinaida Serebriakova, 1911
I really love this painter

@InternetEh all her stuff looks so contemporary! I can’t believe this one is from 1909

@prehensile she puts so much light and life in people's eyes and expression

@prehensile @InternetEh this is incredible it looks like an instagram post or idk :blobaww: 202X energy is so strong on this

@lilov @prehensile yeah there are edited versions that make it look more like a selfie

@lilov @prehensile @InternetEh Even though the background is clearly early 1900's, the presentation is indeed very much this century.

Now I want to see commentary on this work from back when it was made. What was people's impressions of it?

@InternetEh Wow, that's some amazing work indeed. Love how they depict humans.
