"Daria Nikolayevna Khvostova (1783 –?) was the wife V.S. Khvostov, Senator and retired Governor of Tomsk. She was also a second cousin to M.M. Arsenieva, mother of the poet M.Y. Lermontov. The smooth, wave-like linear rhythm, soft modelling of the face with its irregular features, warm pale colouration and “Renaissant” gesture of the hand - all this makes the image unusually sincere, confiding and intimate. Romanticism presupposes not so much the strength of emotions in women as their emotional delicacy, hypersensitivity. It appears that the model’s gaze is directed at the viewer, but in fact – it goes through the viewer, into infinity."
