Картина Александра Вишнякова — одно из самых ранних изображений крестьянских трапез. Гротеск, свойственный всей сцене, подобен изображению грубой натуры, характерной для голландских и фламандских картин мастеров XVII века, которым подражали и русские художники середины XVIII века.

Peasant Carousal

Late 1760s — early 1770s

Oil on canvas. 47.5 x 59

Received in 1918 from the Society for the Encouragement of Arts

The ball was not the only way of spending a noisy and boisterous evening in the nineteenth century. The alternative was a heavy drinking bout in the company of swashbuckling officers, idle playboys or just plain drunkards. While the ball was regarded as a decorous and high-class form of entertainment, wild revelry was perceived as a manifestation of "low taste". Although cultivated in certain army circles, it was only socially permitted in a young man in moderate doses. Play and Passion in Russian Fine Art. St-Petersburg. 1999. P. 130.

Peasant Carousal was painted at a time when Russian painters were first attempting to portray folk scenes. The peasants sitting at the table dressed in colourful Russian national costumes are closely observing and excitedly discussing the actions of the central characters a man and woman introducing an element of play to the atmosphere of the feast.
