In the 1860s, Russian art began to merge historical and genre painting. The development of archeology and ethnography allowed artists to depict the past with realistic everyday details. The pre-Petrine epoch appeared to be a genuine and unique culture. The 17th century had a special appeal thanks to its brilliance. The painting by Schwarz is dedicated to the said period. Interpreting a historical scene as an ordinary one, the artist fills it with delicate lyricism. The tsarist carriages and picturesque costumes of the suite look exquisite against the spring landscape. The aesthetics of Old Russian life becomes the main theme of the painting.
