Bogdanov-Belsky was a very prolific genre painter and notable member of the Wanderers. He studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture, the Imperial Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg, and the Semen Rachinsky Fine Art School. Bogdanov-Belsky joined the Academy of Arts 1914, and painted numerous pastoral scenes of Russian life and landscape. He had a particular affinity for capturing the universal pastimes of childhood such as swimming, playing music, fishing, or games like tug-of-war. Bogdanov-Belsky's canvases reflect an idealization of contemporary life common in the academy-trained painters working prior to the revolution.
