Blind Master


Vasily Maximov was one of the leading Wanderers. He completely dedicated his work to the depiction of peasant life. The son of a peasant, he never lost his connection to the village, and this gives his work a particular authenticity. Blind Master is permeated with sorrow and sympathy for the poor. At the same time, the artist lovingly conveys the details of patriarchal peasant life.
