Fyodor Vasilyev: "Wet Meadow"

1872 - oil on canvas - The Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia

Died at the age of 23 victim of a tuberculosis, Feodor Vasilyev was a brillian "boy genius" who established himself as one of the most important and respected Russian painters of his era, introducing the lyrical landscape style in Russian painting. "Wet meadow" is a beautiful, lyric masterwork done completely from memory and a few sketches of the Russian plains.

Vasilyev was a fierce competitor to Ivan Shishkin, who was later accused of predujice Vasilyev using his important influences.
