Even from a long distance, this picture attracts our attention with a sweeping manner of performance. With its intense color and bright pattern, it resembles a colorful carpet. Approaching, you can distinguish between two large figures of peasant women – they seem to pose, flaunt before us. Their faces and hands are clearly visible, but the rest of the details are drowning in an expressive stream of strokes, conventionally outlining wandering dresses and hemispheres. Splasty figures, flowing fabrics of clothes occupying the entire surface of the canvas, create the impression of a decorative plane, which even voluminous heads do not interfere. In memory, images of Russian folk art involuntarily stand.

Similar temperamentally executed canvases, devoid of the plot, genre principle, but possessing a bright and intense color, earned noisy glory to the artist Philip Malyavin, a student of Repin.

All these works, somehow demonstrating the originality of Russian national painting, of course, made a great impression on foreign spectators. But the canvases of representatives of the Moscow school who wrote in the recognized truly French impressionistic manner, especially the work of Konstantin Korovin, caused no less delight.
