The artist is a broom

In the second half of the 19th century, Russian artists willingly turned to topics from the history of the Moscow kingdom. Moreover, they were worried not only by the heroic moments of the past, but also by the everyday aspects of people’s lives, first of all, of the Grand Duke and Boyar nobility. The creation of such works required painters of good knowledge of the national costume, applied art, architecture. The picture of Karl Venig, depicting a noble young hawthorn in a rich outfit, appeared at one of the exhibitions at the Imperial Academy of Arts and was a huge success with the audience.
