Sower - Grigory Grigoryevich Myasoedov. 82.5 x 58.5 cm
Grigory Grigoryevich Myasoedov can rightfully be called the pride of Russian painting of the 19th century. Despite the complexity of his character, while his contemporaries spoke of Grigory Grigoryevich as an ironic, sharp, sometimes unbearable person, he possessed a subtlety of perception, thoughtfulness, observation, sincerity and depth in the depiction of characters and plots.
Myasoedov studied at the Imperial Academy of Arts, where he was awarded the Academy's awards, worked and lived in Europe (Paris, Florence, Vienna), from 1869 he returned to Russia. He organizes and actively participates in the creation of a society of Wanderers, who were inspired by the ideas of Narodism.
He, who was born into a noble family in the Tula province, was familiar with and familiar with the theme of the Russian peasantry, they knew their hard forced labor, their poverty and powerlessness. On this subject he writes such works as “Self-incinerators”, “Zemstvo dines” and others. Here Myasoedov manifests himself as a classic representative of critical realism.
As a sensitive artist and man, to some extent, marking a new stage in his work, Myasoedov writes a whole series of paintings dedicated to the beauty and grandeur of the ordinary toiler of the earth - the Russian peasant. Such canvases as "Pahivanie", "Suffering time", "Road in the rye", are widely known.
But can the painting “The Sower” performed by the author in 1888 not cause admiration? It just blows from it with the smell of spring, a warm and humid field, the expectation of rain, so long-awaited at this time.
The peasant in the image of the author is handsome in his eternal peasant labor and mission - to throw a handful of grain into fertile land.
His movements are measured, wide, subordinate to some eternal natural rhythm, subconsciously existing in every Russian person.
The picture creates a feeling of light and goodness, calm and soulfulness, harmony of nature and man - there is no falsehood, everything is real here.
