“The Maternity Woman” by Dmitry Oktyabrsky


“The Birth of a Woman” by Dmitry Oktyabrsky 1998
Oil on canvas, 80×60 cm

Description of the painting “The Maternity Woman”.

By a certain age I felt a strong desire for love and happiness. I wanted children and a family.
That’s how this picture was born.
For some reason I thought then that summer, warmth, sunshine, meadows, grass, flowers – everything is about love.
And I saw a beautiful woman, I saw a baby coming into her life, and it was my son or daughter. And that’s how everything resonated in me, and there was a “transfer” to the canvas. I love this painting very much.
First of all, it’s one of my earliest works, and everyone who looks at it says, “WOW – it’s a masterpiece!” It’s definitely about happiness and about love. That’s probably the best assessment of an artist’s work.
