The artist is Kramskoy
The creation of collective images of people from the people of Kramskoy considered one of the most important tasks of contemporary art. "And what can the people give! My god, what a huge spring!" – He wrote to Ilya Repin. In the portrait of Mina Moiseev, the ability to concentrate on the most essential artist clearly manifested itself. In the appearance of a peasant, in his free, laid -back pose, inner calm and independence are felt. Wrinkled by wrinkles, the senile face radiates human warmth, kindness, testifying to wise and life experience.
