The Moscow artists who began to move towards Impressionism in the 1880s admired the works of the young Serov and his pastoral landscapes that so clearly revealed the lyricism of modest events in daily life. Benefiting from the instruction of his teachers, Repin and Tchistiakov, he became the finest Russian portrait artist of his generation. His skill is evident in some of his most beautiful paintings, The Girl with Peaches and Ulysses and Nausicaa. Serov's creative work and experience opened the way for Russian painting to become part of pictorial art in the 20th century.
Dmitri V. Sarabianov (1923-2013) was one of the leading Russian art historians of his generation. He was a professor of the history of Russian art at Moscow State University.
