This is the only surviving landscape by Nikifor Krylov, one of the first masters in Russian art to depict winter. The Chernyatinsky (Chernyagin)merchants built him a warm studio on the site and supported him with funds while he worked, earning the gratitude of the Society for the Encouragement of Artists for contributing to “the success of future talents”. The combination of interest in genre details with an integral perception of nature imparts an unexpected effect to the painting.
