Artist's Description

“Girl with Peaches” is a famous impressionist portrait by the Russian artist Valentin Serov, painted in 1887. That was 30 years before the Great October Socialist Revolution. I drew this picture 65 years after the revolution, in 1982, and peaches were nowhere to be found at the local state-run store in the village of Yaroshivka, Ukraine.

A local village girl brought a boiled potato to my dormitory because she thought I might be hungry. Another time she brought me a one-liter glass jar with fresh milk. She said she had never traveled farther than 50 kilometers outside her village. Me being from the administrative center of the entire oblast made me look almost like a rock star. She said she dreamed of going far, far away, and trying various exotic things, like peaches, which she had never eaten. As we talked about her life, I started sketching her sitting at my table in front of the potato. In the end I scribbled “Girl with Peach” in Russian.
