Stozharov subtly felt the prospect in its historical embodiment, understood the traditions of the people. All his still lifes are oversaturated with rich colors. This is a real celebration of the spirit of the people. Stozharov trowels depicted ordinary objects that peasants used in everyday life.
In his paintings we see magnificent tuesa, ordinary clay pots, towels with patterns, spinning wheels, painted spoons and much more. They all stand or lie on a simple table, which is located in a log cabin. The viewer can feel the past, which becomes the most tangible and recognizable.
When you look at this picture you can feel a rare coloristic gift of the artist. His creation is monumental and national. It is simply amazing how Stozharov prescribes every subject. They are so tangible. it seems that quite a bit more, and they materialize. This is the true skill of the artist.
Stozharov lovingly prescribes all the details of the usual life of peasants. You can see all the roughnesses of the rough table. The folds of embroidered towels are unusually real. All dishes surprise with rich colors. We feel that the artist liked to write still lifes specifically on the topic of everyday life of ordinary people. He skillfully finds beauty in ordinary things. Portraying ordinary objects, he creates a real masterpiece, striking a grand design.
Stozharov uses rich colors. His still life, as if inside, is filled with light. The audience does not have an oppressive impression, although the life of the peasants was rather bleak. We can only feel the joy of the artist, who is proud that he is a Russian person. This high spirits is involuntarily transmitted to us. I would like to consider the artist’s still life as detailed as possible, since this picture helps to understand the essence of the Russian character.
