Modern Russian painting plunges its roots between two major events of its political history :  The crowning of the Tsar Alexandre II in 1885 and the bloody Revolution of October 1917. A goodbye to the ancestral academism which signed the great European romantic century. The Russian identity is expressed in force, mirror of a culture in search of a contemporary energy.  Tolstoï writer is one of the first to express this social perspicacity to denounce the sufferings of people scorned such a long time.  The sensitivity of the small people becomes cultural treasure and the artists take with full hands this providential verism, taking as a starting point the the popular prints, the songs of cabaret, the Russian heart.  There is not of real leader charismatic to incarn this dash, but a painter such as Vasnetsov plays definitely an important character due to its knowledge of the history of Western art who allows him to throw a bridge between these cultural dissidences.  Another painter, Répine, transmits the popular art from village to village and carries a politically committed message.  In this wake militant, villages workshops born here or there, such as Abramtsevo, in the north of Moscow.  Images with powerful realism, tormented, feed of a melancholy which announces the dark years of large Russia.
