At the door of the school

The artist is Bogdanov -Belsky

Coming from the peasants, Nikolai Bogdanov-Belsky devoted a significant part of his work to rural schoolchildren. With love, he portrayed his smart and smart heroes in indecision standing at the threshold of the school, then solving a task at a classroom board, reading books or talking with a teacher. Painted with features of idealization, the canvas of the master are permeated with ideas that enlightenment can tear the Russian village from poverty and lack of rights can morally improve people. In line with such ideas, a carefully written canvas “at the door of the school”, inspired by the real facts of life, is perhaps the memories of the artist who once graduated from the rural school of Sergei Rachinsky in Tatev’s Smolensk province.
