Arkhip Kuindzhi’s work sums up the development of the motif of the road and landscape in the age of Critical Realism. A large portion of the canvas was traditionally occupied by the sky, covered in clouds. The tracks from the cart and the travellers in the foreground are painted with naturalistic authenticity. The low horizon and the virtually indiscernible contours of the wooden huts are lost in the haze. This particular subject conveys notes of sorrow and alarm.
