Self-portrait with Yellow Lilies. 1907
77.5 х 58.2 Oil on canvas New Tretyakov, Hall 1,2

"Goncharova painted her self-portrait in her Moscow studio, with unframed pictures of her impressionist period on the wall. The images in those paintings are formed with exuberant brushstrokes, which seem eager to go beyond the limits of the canvases. The element of colours triumphs over the element of matter, which is confronted with even more energetic expressive painting in the foreground. The snow-white blouse with blue and pink reflexes, framed in a blue contour, is like white primed canvas, which features yellow lilies bursting into flames. The flowers look like a blazing torch in the artist's hands. The impetuous brushstrokes of fiery colours bring to mind the painting manner of expressionism's founder, Vincent van Gogh, with whom Goncharova enters into a creative dialogue. The bouquet in the subject's rough hand serves as a metaphor for her strong creative temperament. Goncharova is one of the first """avant-garde Amazons""", female artists of the new formation. On the self-portrait, she is first of all a creator"
