The Russian way of life in the seventeenth century was the theme of many paintings by Andrei Ryabushkin in the second half of the 1890s. Recreating the historical setting, the artist accurately conveys the costumes and architecture of that period. Interpreting the subject as a vivid urban scene, Ryabushkin paints an internally dynamic image of a street after a downpour, transformed into a fast flowing river.
