This painting is a combination of a genre scene and a portrait – a typical mix in Venetsianov’s work.

In 1826–1827 a painting entitled A Peasant Boy Donning Bast Shoes was exhibited by the Artists’ Support Society. After the exhibition it was copied by an unknown lithographer. One copy of the painting created by K.A. Zelentsov can be seen in the State Tretyakov Gallery and another one by an unknown artist of the second quarter of the 19th century – in the State Russian Museum.
