Fifteen Great Russian Artworks You Won’t Find in Any Schoolbooks

Late 19th century, “Drunk again” by Ivan Gorokhov.

Another variation on the same topic – a drunk father returning home with a bottle of vodka. A young boy clenches his fists, but can’t do anything yet. The rest of the family is scared. Ivan Gorokhov, the artist, was born in a peasant family and knew of this from his own experience.

Vladimir Makovsky, 1882 “I won’t let you go”.

The picture shows how a desperate wife tries to hold the head of the family away from the next visit to a bar. However, according to the look on the father’s face, neither she nor the kid will be able to stop him.
“Poor workers spend in bars everything they ought to take home to their wives and families. Often you can see how they sell their cloths for vodka and stay absolutely naked”, wrote an English diplomat of that time, D. Fletcher.

Vasili Maximov “Just like grown-ups do”, 1864.

Boys tried to copy their fathers as they grew up, and started drinking early. This way their future families also were doomed to live in a drunken delirium. In poor families little kids started to work as young as three years old, and were often treated as equals, so it involved drinking too sometimes.

    Russia under the jewish thumb. No happiness. No solace. No rest. No Love. Lot of owing. Lot of debt. Lot of slave wages. Lot of rich jews. All so well deserved as Love of the jews monies is far more wanted by the sufferers than Love itself.
