Grandmother's Tales - Vasily Maximovich Maximov. 92 x 67 cm

Vasily Maksimovich Maksimov comes from a peasant family and, like no one understands difficulties and need, knows the traditions and way of life of the villagers.

His work "Grandma's Tales" is perhaps one of the most famous. The picture is good in that in it the author depicted the internal state of the characters rather than any action. But the author with skill has also described a simple decoration of the room. A cradle for the baby is suspended above the ceiling, the laundry is dried and then a bunch of mushrooms or some herbs. The walls contain the necessary things on the farm.

In the evening, in a hut lit by a torch, the whole large peasant family gathered to listen to their favorite tales. For a long day spent in labor and care, such gatherings with quiet stories or conversations are a vacation for peasants.

In the center of the canvas is a storyteller grandmother. Her pensive, kind and wise face is beautifully reflected by the artist. Exhausted hands never know peace, and now, in the hands of a spindle that "sings" in unison with the tale being told.

A woman with a child thoughtfully left her thoughts or listened to an extraordinary story. Nearby, a sitting young girl is interested in the plot and she, propping her face with her hand, carefully follows the story.

The men on the left side of the picture are busy with their work, but no, no, they put things off, carried away by a particularly interesting moment. But, of course, children are the most grateful and direct listeners. All emotions are written on their ingenuous faces.

Two kids sitting opposite the grandmother, just froze from a breathtaking fairy tale and are looking forward to continue. Behind the back of the storyteller are three more older children. Of course, they are also interested, but they are already more serious and thoughtful.

What we see different feelings of all the characters depicted, but the plot is united by the idea of ​​the author of the picture - truthfully show the peasants. He lovingly describes their simple peasant dwelling, their faces meaningful with emotions.

Yes, they have a lot of work and worries from an early age, but they can sincerely get involved, empathize, relax and enjoy uncomplicated fun.
