Partly the picture is destroyed. Makarova died. Now the picture is in a private collection in Ryazan. The story of the creation of the picture, from virtual tours with Tatyana Lavrentovich from the paintings of Alexei Akindinov:

We continue our acquaintance with the work of the Artist Alexei Akindinov, his sincere stories about the history of the creation of paintings. Today, our attention is presented to the picture "Hush", dedicated to the theme of childhood. The canvas shows a sleeping baby in a crib. How much tenderness, affection, and tenderness does this plot evoke! A woman has a sense of motherhood, men have pride in such a little man in whom he will repeat himself! .. The baby is sleeping in her room, her mother left the nightlight on. Outside the window there, trains pass by, sometimes breaking the silence of the night with their beeps. The baby sleeps while sleeping and there is no music more angelic ... The picture is made in bright colors shining with joy. Listening to the musical accompaniment you involuntarily find yourself in that world of Childhood and I want to ask myself - What does childhood smell like? Milk, caramel, chocolates, Christmas gifts, Christmas tree, laughter? Each will answer in his own way ...
"Hush", 60 x 80 cm, oil on canvas, 2002
The picture "Hush" refers to the period of the search for diversity within my style of ornamentalism. During these years, I come to an interesting perception of the world and call it "threads." Instead of patterns, I depict threads in the plots of paintings. All of them are created with a brush and paints, I write each thread in the picture "by hand". Paintings of this period, as a rule, I painted first creating a structure on the canvas from the drawn threads of different colors, then, when the paint layer dried well, I wrote the plot of the picture on it. So I wrote a series of paintings: "Hush", "Discovery", "Graveyard", "Frosts", "Underwater Starship", "Waiting. Elena."
In the picture "Hush," I portrayed the baby’s bedroom. Evening is coming down to the city, the child has just fallen asleep in his crib, - probably mother read him a bedtime story. The lamp has not yet been extinguished; its light reveals the patterns of the carpet. These patterns are symbols of a child’s dreams. He went on his fabulous journey into the world of dreams. On the table in front of the window sits a toy - a dog, it protects the baby's dreams. Asters stand in a crystal vase on a windowsill. Outside the window in the cityscape, we see a train going into the distance. His wheels are tapping peacefully, taking our thoughts far beyond the horizon into the world of fantasies and magical dreams ... "
