Vasily Mathe: Andrei Ryabushkin.jpg

Andrei Ryabushkin was a Russian painter, active during the end of the 19th century.

His family were painters of religious icons and Ryabushkin studied at the Moscow School of Painting as a teenager. After leaving, he toured Russia, studying ancient towns, fascinated with old architecture, clothing, books and other artefacts.

Andrei Ryabushkin’s paintings typically focused on portraying 17th century – however he focused on everyday life rather than typical representations of historic events – which did restrain his popularity during his lifetime.
