The famous Russian painter Andrei Petrovich Ryabushkin is famous for his exceptional craftsmanship, with whom he painted historical and genre paintings and recreated the life of Moscow houses of the 17th century.
One of the artist’s most popular paintings is The Wedding Train in Moscow, which is now located in the collection of the State Tretyakov Gallery, and is full of life and special charm.
The work was written in 1901 and is one of many dedicated to the master depicting the people, costume and architecture of the 17th century. One glance at the picture is enough to feel the atmosphere of that time and briefly travel to the world of other cultural traditions.
Ryabushkin depicts an ordinary village street along which a procession of horses, people and carts swiftly sweeps - an ancient rite that was held in Russia in honor of the wedding. The whole composition of the picture is subject to one rhythm - fast movement, a lot of moving figures and objects.
On the right, most of the canvas is a dark spot, a wooden house, near which stands a lonely and sad girl. The color of the picture is very typical for Ryabushkin's painting. A bright red color dominates, painting the wagon and folk traditional costumes in which the heroes are dressed.
"Wedding Train in Moscow" is written on a canvas of a very wide, more even panoramic format. This feature was not characteristic of the painting of that time, but Ryabushkin very successfully defeated an atypical format. This allowed the artist not only to emphasize the elongated composition of the "wedding train", but also to increase the effect of presence - the viewer really thinks he is a witness to the events.
The atmosphere of the 17th century, bright and festive, but with a hint of sadness on the background of general joy - this work can really be considered a landmark in the entire work of the artist.
