Ivan Pelevin was called a genre painter of feeling. In his works, he sought to not so much reproduce definite types as convey a certain poetic feeling. This aspect of the artist s talent is well incarnated in this canvas. The ability to pinpoint the elegant in a simple peasant situation is manifested in the appetising painting of the clay pots with sparkling varnished sides, the radiant smile of the young mother and the mischievous innocence of the skittish kitten. The canvas was acquired by the Imperial Academy of Arts and frequently shown at its exhibitions.
