Here he met with a genuine painting, and deep impressions of gave a very specific meaning to his vague dreams: he decided to become an artist.

This young man was SV Malutin. In 1883, he entered the Moscow School of Painting. 1880s. were the heyday of Russian art-related, as in the previous decade, with activities TPHV.
