The famous Russian artist Nikolai Petrovich Bogdanov-Belsky wrote a unique and incredibly life story in 1895. The work is called “Oral Account”, and in the full version “Oral Account. At the S.A. Rachinsky public school. ”
The picture is painted in oil on canvas, it depicts a rural school of the 19th century during a lesson in arithmetic. Students solve an interesting and complex example. They are in deep thought and searching for the right solution. Someone is thinking at the blackboard, someone is standing on the sidelines and trying to match the knowledge that will help in solving the problem. Children are completely absorbed in finding the answer to the question, they want to prove to themselves and the world that they can do it.
Nearby is a teacher whose prototype is Rachinsky himself - a famous botanist and mathematician. No wonder the picture was given such a name, it is in honor of a professor at Moscow University. The painting depicts 11 children and only one boy quietly whispers to the teacher in the ear, perhaps the correct answer.
The painting depicts a simple Russian class, the children are dressed in peasant clothes: bast shoes, pants and shirts. All this is very harmoniously and succinctly fits into the plot, unobtrusively bringing the world a craving for knowledge from the side of the simple Russian people.
Warm colors bring the kindness and simplicity of the Russian people, there is no envy and falsehood, there is no evil and hatred, children from different families with different incomes come together to make the only right decision. This is very lacking in our modern life, where people are used to living in a completely different way, regardless of the opinions of others.
Nikolai Petrovich dedicated the painting to his teacher, the great genius of mathematics, whom he knew and respected. Now the picture is in Moscow in the Tretyakov Gallery, will be there, be sure to look at the pen of the great master.
