Nicolai Fechin’s daughter, Eya, was a frequent subject of his drawings and paintings. In this charcoal portrait, Fechin captures Eya as she begins to make the journey from baby to little girl. Her round cheeks and chin are filled with innocence, but her eyes seem to be drinking her world in even as she begins to make judgments and assess her place in it.
