Hilary Giedroyć VáclavHilary Giedroyć Václav2018-03-24🌹 ☕🌹I think that a clue to eternity for art is pure and honesty. “Tea Drinking in Mytishchi, near Moscow” of 1862 by Vasili Perov is a painting, which holds nothing random. The entire number of details, nuances and trivia make it solicitous. Even the scene is completely justified as it was Mytishchi water considered the most delicious.
☕We see a casual, trivial
summer scene outside Moscow. The monk, probably an abbot, drinks tea from a shiny gilt samovar in the shade of a garden. A pair of skinny beggars suddenly appeared before him: an old blind disabled soldier and a guide boy. The concerned maid tries to drive them away, while the stuffed monk pretends that what is happening to him does not apply at all.
🌹The orders on the worn out soldier's greatcoat, the tattered shirt of the boy, the red shining face of the monk, the hurried and fussy figure of the monastic novice in the background, the open bag of the important guest ready to receive the presents — can tell us more about the purpose of the satirical painting. Still. Nothing changed at all throughout the century.
