Urban life and industrial progress were central themes in Pimenov’s work and he travelled extensively. ‘Travel will always be travel, be it out of town, in the suburbs or the countryside, or just inside the city. What actually matters is your state of mind and the perceptiveness of your gaze at that moment in time. A journey will always contain the excitement and curiosity of departure, but best of all is the joy of returning. For an artist, travelling is an exhausting, interesting and very hard way to earn their daily bread’ – the artist wrote later in his career (quoted in Yuri Pimenov: k 110-letiyu so dnya rozhdeniya, 2013, p.116).
