Female Builder belongs to the early period of Nina Zhilinskaya’s oeuvre. This is one of the rare works in the museum collection reflecting the principles of the “severe style”. The sculpture is distinguished by the antiheroic nature of its subject, a terseness and laconism of language and generalization of form. At the same time, its use of the expressive potential of its material, hammered copper, and its powerfully decorative character point towards the future evolutionary path of Zhilinskaya’s art, which would embody neo-Baroque principles in Moscow sculpture.
