Portrait of Justyna Szaszkiewicz
Information about author
Justyna Zuzanna Szaszkiewicz was a wife of Karol Szaszkiewicz. Her mother was Mykhailyna from the Baworowski Dulski family. Stylistic changes in the Ukrainian portraiture were in line with the trends of European painting. Images of women were depicted in fashionable European dresses, with wigs on their heads, and slightly smiling. The bust-length portrait of Justyna Szaszkiewicz follows the rules of canonical ceremonial portraits of the 18th century where a person was presented in a formal pose. The portrait details the woman's attire and jewellery, in particular a low-necked dress with lace, which is decorated with flowers in the centre, and a tall wig with ostrich feathers. There is another image of Justyna Szaszkiewicz (Ж-1446), which also comes from the collection of Wiktor Baworowski.
