The artist is the Venetian

At the end of 1820-X, continuing to create small works, close in nature to field sketches, Venetians are increasingly turning to the large-sized canvases with generalized figurative characteristics of the characters. These paintings include "Reapers" – One of the best creatures of the period of the highest creative heyday of the master. The picture is essentially a genre portrait, which is a lot in the creative heritage of Venetinov (the peasant boy Zakharka is depicted, whom Venetinov portraited in 1825). The images, however, become emphasized by monumental, a picturesque texture is revealed, a smear becomes large and pastes. The artist with seriousness and sincerity, far from sentimentality, embodies the beauty and strength of a directly manifested feeling, which is characteristic of romantic art, which often resorted to the genre characteristic of the character.
