His works are filled with the lives of people, the beauty of the nature of Russia and the history of the Russian people. This became the leading link in the work of the Master. Such pictures help to understand the deep essence of his works.
The future artist was born in the family of a priest. My father loved nature, studied science, astronomy and painting. Since childhood, he instilled in the boy a love for nature, he could observe its changes for a long time, and at night he adored admiring the stars and constellations.
During his life, the artist has achieved a lot and painted a sufficient number of paintings, however, one of the most striking works is the painting The Moscow Kremlin under Ivan Kalita. Here we see the oak Kremlin walls of the future city, instead of the walls made of pine, as previously assumed. The artist showed the city from the side of the Neglinnaya River and the Moscow River. In the foreground is a small part of the river, boats and people who go about their business. A wooden bridge, which is transferred through Neglinka, leads to the Kremlin through the Borovitsky Gate. On the shore, people begin to heat the baths, and from their windows felled smoke.
Oak picket fence, installed opposite the Kremlin wall, was built specially for the security of the Kremlin. On the hill is located the princely tower, connected by log cabins made of wood, and a high staircase is installed to it. On the left side of the prince’s courtyard is the Assumption Cathedral, made of stone, and the Archangel Cathedral was built a little distance away.
The beauty of the picture emphasizes the winter sky and the delightful color of the picture, made in brownish-bluish tones.
