The painting "At Home" was created in 1902. This work has a deep meaning and is unlikely to leave anyone indifferent. Very accurately and realistically, the artist conveyed the peasants of that time, their originality. Uncomplicated household utensils, benches along the walls and, of course, a Russian stove. A modest dwelling, where village people live, not burdened by high incomes.

Plain wooden hut, with nails for hats nailed. Apparently a young man returned home from a big city. Perhaps after school, because his clothes more like an official form. All relatives surrounded the visitor and listened with curiosity to his story. Here sits both the old grandfather with a beard, and grandmother. Probably, the arrival of a man is a significant event and everyone listens with interest. Another young guy is standing, holding a hat in his hands. He seemed to be in a hurry on business, but he really wanted to listen to the guest.

The little boy is turned his back, his gaze does not look up from the visitor. Children are always curious about what is happening outside their world, and the world is a small, deaf village. The old man leaned a little back, thereby showing that he did not believe in the story, because the interlocutor was talking about something absolutely incredible. One woman drowns the stove, she is also interested in listening to the guest, but the warmth in the house is very important. Apparently it’s already getting colder on the street, because grandfather’s boots are on his feet.

The visitor vied with each other tells about his impressions and his face shows that he is no longer the village guy he left home. It is impossible not to notice the contrast in the clothes of the characters. Wicker bast shoes significantly lag behind the modern at that time leather shoes of a visitor. Perhaps the appearance of the guest is so surprising to others, but their attention is difficult not to notice. It is immediately clear that he is different, not like the locals.

The picture today has not lost its relevance. Many young people leave the villages to study or work. Arriving at home, they also stand out and in their image they no longer recognize the guy from the neighboring house, although no one wears bast shoes and boots for a long time.

    I absolutely agree with you. There's something about that, and it's a great idea. I support you.
