Moscow inn – Boris Mikhailovich Kustodiev. 1916. Oil on canvas. 99.3×129.3

   Moscow inn – a special, difficult place. The main thing in it is communication, relaxation. That is what the inn appears in the picture. Graceful and elegant sex serving visitors. Red ceilings and arches give the work a joyful and festive atmosphere. Judging by the verbaum beam behind the icon, the action takes place on the eve of Easter.

   In the center of the inn at one table there is a very colorful group. The same clothes give them cabbage soup, arranged a tea break. Chinno and with dignity taste tea from the cab. Like medieval workshop masters during a ceremony. And musical accompaniment is provided by songbirds in cages under the ceiling. The elder of a respected meeting is sitting under the icon. Even some similarities of the image on this icon with the strict and solemn face of the tea chairman are guessed.
