Art Review - "Family" by Sergey Ivanov - State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia

Today's #MuseumTourTuesday features Russian artist Sergey Ivanov.

Yes, I know it's spring, and I'm sharing a snowy painting, but the colorful nature of the figures' clothing grabbed my attention this morning.
Sergey's paintings were often focused on the lives of Russian peasants. During the late 19th Century, many were forced to relocate to outlying areas in an attempt to ease overcrowding in villages. Sergey depicts the beauty of these people despite the hardship of their lives.
Notice the richness of color not only in the clothing, but also the faces of the figures.
