The artist is Repin
The plot of the painting “Picnic”, created during a pensioner trip in France, is filled with carelessness and freedom of foreign life. It depicts the author, his wife Vera Alekseevna, his daughter Vera, artist Nikolai Dmitriev-Orenburg, his daughter Katya, artist Vasily Polenov, Polish artist Pantaleon Schindler and Maria (Vera (Vera?) Grigoryevna Ge. In the image of the game in Sergo against the background of the landscape, the influence of modern French art is only indirectly visible. In a fugitive and mild letter, the lessons of pleader painting obtained by Repin during full work in the summer of 1874 in the Norman town of Veloda are more likely.
