When adult Russians see paintings like these, they vividly recollect moments of their earlier years in the country that seems to be gone forever. Days in a village, newborn registration, hard work at a factory or a plant, wearing red scarves, drinking hot tea from a samovar… What’s the point in arguing if that time was better than now or worse? It’s just a pleasure to feel a bit nostalgic.
