Footnotes

  • I am in Morocco! [...] I have decided to travel on a whim, since the whole trip was sponsored by Mr. Brouwer, who commissioned portraits that I painted during the summer in Bruges. He asked me to paint nudes of beautiful Moroccan women
    [From Z. Serebriakova to E. Lancere, letter 140, V.P Kniazeva [ed.], Zinaida Serebriakova/ Letters. Reflections of contemporaries of the artist, 'Fine Art', Moscow, 1987]

    я очутилась – в Марокко! [...] Вообще же я рискнула этой поездкой, так как деньги на нее дал мне взаймы тот господин Броуэр, у которого я рисовала в Брюгге летом портреты. Он хотел, чтобы я здесь сделала «ню» с туземок прекрасных
    [Из писем Зинаиды Серебряковой]
