She was pretty much forced to eavesdrop on village gossip as she painted pictures in these villages to garner mostly anecdotal information about life among the peasants. In any case, we discover what Ivan liked and disliked, how his life was pre-ordained from even before his birth until his death including his infancy, adolescence, married life, and his life as a parent.

Village Life in Late Tsar. An interesting book covering the life of peasants in late 19th century Russian. I thought their transition from serfs to free people was interesting.

Village Life in Late Tsarist Russia provides a unique firsthand portrait of peasant family life as recorded by Olga Semyonova Tian-Shanskaia, an ethnographer and painter who spent four years at the turn of the twentieth century observing the life and customs of villagers in a central Russian province. Unusual in its awareness of the rapid changes in the Russian village in the late nineteenth century and in its concentration on the treatment of women and children, Semyonova’s ethnography vividly describes courting rituals, marriage and sexual practices, childbirth, infanticide, child-rearing practices, the lives of women, food and drink, work habits, and the household economy. In contrast to a tradition of rosy, romanticized descriptions of peasant communities by Russian upper-class observers, Semyonova gives an unvarnished account of the harsh living conditions and often brutal relationships within peasant families.
