This painting was executed ca. 1900 by an ukrainian painter from the circle of famous Russian-Ukrainian artist Konstantin Trutovsky (1826-1893) on the basis of Trutovsky`s famous work "Shevchenko by the Dnipro" (Ukrainian poet Shevchenko as Kobza-player on the bank of river Dnipro). Konstantin Trutovsky was a Russian-Ukrainian realist painter and graphic artist. He studied at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts (1845-1849) and in 1860 became an academician. His artistic heritage includes numerous genre scenes on Ukrainian themes. He was interested in ethnography and depicted colorful Ukrainian folk customs, not shying away from "a dash of good humour". Like Taras Shevchenko, Ukraine´s foremost bard, Trutovsky described the miserable and hopeless life of the peasant. Trutovsky took part in publishing Lev Zhemchuzhnikov´s album, Picturesque Ukraine, and illustrated the poems and biography of Shevchenko. Collections: Works by the artist is represented in State Museum of Fine Art, Kiev; State Museum of Tatarstan; Kazan and Kursk Gallery, Ukraine, amongst others.
