Drawing "The Wayfarer" I. Repin 1879

Pencil drawing "Traveler".

The focus of attention and composition is somewhat obliquely, leaning on the hut, a Russian peasant with skinny belongings, breathing and immersed in his thoughts. The figure of the walker is given almost from the back, which emphasizes the veracity and artistic non-engagement of the sketch. The Wanderer, the Wanderer in Russia is an almost metaphysical figure. A kind of legalized holiness of folk philosophy, measuring life with steps and homeland from edge to edge. He is the bearer of wisdom and truth beyond the categories of wealth. However, as an objective observer, the artist mixes with the possibility of momentary concern. This is the polyphony and versatility of the semantic shades of reality, which I.E. Repin so loved to show in its entirety.

Signed in the lower right corner by I. Repin, date 1879.24X21cm.
