Vintage Nurse Painting

To Russia With Love

Original Coloured Pencil Painting

Medium: Coloured Pencil on paper

Dimensions: 21 x 29cm

To Russia With Love was created after I discovered a wonderful photograph of Tatiana Romanov, eldest daughter of the last Russian Royal family.

I chose to amend this image to make my own comment but the viewer can come to their own conclusion or, hopefully, simply enjoy the way the art looks.

Most of the images of the Romanovs are f them dressed in expensive clothing and this was striking as it was so different, almost humble, in an almostĀ  religious way. I believe that thi sis possibly a nurses unform (Red Cross) as opposed to a religious one and this ties in with the meaning of the artwork which touches on tolerance and healing.
