Overview of the painting :
Mina Moiseev – Ivan Nikolaevich Kramskaya. 1882. Oil on canvas. 57×45
Ivan Nikolaevich Kramskaya is one of the ideologists and founders of the famous Partnership of traveling art exhibitions. The main objective of its activity was this association to turn the attention of society to the “calls of our time”, the cruelty and injustice of those in power and the lack of rights of those oppressed by them.
The pathos of civil service pervades the interests of a simple, uneducated people permeates the period from 1860 to 1890s. Hero of numerous works by N. AND. Nekrasova, I. WITH. Turgeneva, M. E. Saltykova-Schedrina became a simple Russian man, melting in his immature appearance the true strength of the spirit of the nation.
In good-naturedly terms of the wrinkled peasant adversity of the face of Mina Moiseev Kramskaya reveals the hidden power of the country and the Russian people, if necessary always “distributing shoulders” and going to wars, riots and revolutions.
