Catalogue Note

Painted in 1895, Children Herding Calves dates from the period during which Sergei Vinogradov was living in Kharkov (1890-1898). While Vinogradov struggled to accept the rural pace of life and, as his close friend Mikhail Yarovoy recalled, ‘missed Moscow and yearned for it’, he was greatly influenced by the surrounding countryside and ‘worked a lot both in drawing and composition’, pastoral images becoming central to his work from this period.

Vinogradov made several preparatory sketches and studies for Children Herding Calves (fig.1), which allowed him to paint a second version later in 1895 which now belongs to the Brodsky Museum in St Petersburg (fig.2).
