The theme of historical and everyday painting has always been popular and interesting among art connoisseurs. Andrei Petrovich Ryabushkin is a Russian painter who, through his works, conveyed the mood of the Russian people in the 17th century. From the age of 14, the artist becomes an orphan, and he is taken to Moscow for training. The Moscow Art School has become a second home for Andrei Ryabushkin.
From childhood, a revival of the creator's love for painting was observed. Therefore, after school, Ryabushkin quickly goes to St. Petersburg to begin his studies at the famous Academy of Arts. All the artist’s creations were filled with his perception of the Russian world and nationality. The village theme was traced in the works, as if Andrei Petrovich was personally present in the events of the past. A key example was the work "Ilya Muromets" - an example of a warrior who defended his native land.
The hero is depicted in full growth, in his armor and weapons. The greatness of the warrior Ilya Muromets is so pronounced that when dealing with an old man near a noble house, it seems heroic power. The painting is depicted in a graphic style that makes the shape of the figures accurate and visible. Epic theme for Ryabushkin - a large cycle of brave heroes.
Real or fictional were the heroes of that time, no one knows. But all the daring that illuminates them in painting convinces of the authenticity of heroic deeds. The work shows that the hero after the battle came to the king with a captive. The enemy is defeated, which means Ilya Muromets, ready to go into a new battle. The strong horse of the hero is hidden behind his broad back, but the viewer understands that this is his faithful assistant.
The work of Andrei Petrovich Ryabushkin is successfully based among the creators of epic painting. The historical moments of the life of the people are perfectly reflected in the works of art. The graphic style allows not only to make images of human faces, but also to retell the sensuality of the artist who writes about Russian life.
