Reaper

Mid-1820s

  • oil on canvas. 30 x 24
  • Ж-5165

  • Пост. в 1924 из ГМФ (Ленинград)


This work was first shown at an exhibition of the Society for the Encouragement of Artists (1826–27). Like many works by Venetsianov, it is a genre painting. The reaper’s uncommon apparel, the dynamic turn of her figure in close-up and the charm of the young peasant woman lend the picture a heightened emotional and festive air, symbolising the ideal spiritual and human nature of the Russian peasantry.
