The artist is Kamenev
Student Savrasov Lev Kamenev loved to portray Russian nature and peasant life. This artist is distinguished by a tendency to a poetic interpretation of nature. The artist made a noticeable contribution to the development of a realistic lyrical landscape. In the 1860s, he created a number of modest, but sincere Russian landscapes. At any time of the year, on a hot summer day or in the evening twilight, he imprinted cows grazing in the fields and fishing boats on the river, rustic huts brought by snow, and the domes of monastery churches, a mowed haystack and sledges driving along the winter road. The simplicity and naturalness of the depicted motives of nature in its paintings are combined with great sincere. For this picture and for the picture “View from the environs of Moscow” in 1869, Kamenev received the title of Academician. In 1870, he became a member of the partnership of the Wanderers.
