RUSSIAN GENRE PAINTINGS FOR SALE - BUY GENRE PAINTING ONLINE AT ARTRUSSIA GALLERY

Genre art can be called a pictorial representation of everyday life, both private and social. The best examples of it show not just boring conventional scenes, but manage to translate the very essence of existence with the use of images of activities that people get involved in very often. Such everyday experiences were the content of many rock drawings, and murals in tombs of the Ancient Egypt from time to time depicted the process of tillage and harvest, hunting and fishing, dances and celebrations. Alexey Venetsianov, whose outstanding portrayal of the peasants’ labour was created to demonstrate the infinite unity of human beings and nature, is considered to be the father of Russian genre painting. Genre painting became a very important part of the art of many Peredvizhniki (members of Russian school of realist painters of second half of 19th century), whose work is filled with sympathy to the ones on bottom of the social hierarchy and strives for attracting attention of the general public to injustice. Genre painting remains just as popular, but today we can see new activities and setting, as artists try to reflect our everyday life in all its diversity. In ArtRussia Gallery you can always purchase genre paintings created by well-known Russian painters or have one painted on your commission. A picture created as a result of your collaboration with an artist can really become the central one in your collection.
