Ryabushkin... Very... very Russian artist. He felt life of Russia and people very sensitively. I can't tell better and realy- he loved his Motherland. Maybe it's heard rather loudly, but it's better word here. Unlike artists, named "Peredvizhniks", Ryabushkin painted life of Russia in light and bright colors, he showed light sides of life. Of usual life of different kinds of people. As person he was very quiet and modest man. Ryabushkin loved painting, but not honor and PR.
Maybe because of it he is great and famous, but not wellknown. His artworks available in general museums of Russia as Moscow Tretyakov Gallery and Russian Museum of St. Petersburg.
Intresting feature of his life: When he graduated from Moscow Academy of Fine Arts with exelent mark, he was awarded a journey to Europe. But Ryabushkin refused to go. He preferred to travel the ancient towns of Russia. These little, quite and unknown towns, shapes of them lived in Ryabushkin Arts. It was his real mission.
