Abram Arkhipov was a Russian realist artist, who was a member of the art collective The Wanderers as well as the Union of Russian Artists. Born in the village of Yegorovo in the Ryazan Oblast to a religious Russian-Orthodox family, Arkhipov left for the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in 1877, where he would fall under the tutelage of various Russian artists including Vasily Perov, Vasily Polenov and Vladimir Makovsky. In 1883, Archipov went to study at the Imperial Academy of Arts at St. Petersburg, where he would stay there two years, before returning to complete his studies in Moscow.



Arkhipov was accepted into the art collective, The Wanderers, in 1889, and joined the Union of Russian Artists in 1903. Themes that occur within his artwork include the lives of Russian women, with some of his realist paintings depicting their grim daily realities. Arkhipov also painted several paintings of peasant women in rural Russia, depicting them in vibrant traditional dresses and national costumes. Like others in the Union of Russian Artists, Arkhipov also painted regularly en plein air, travelling and painting scenes from the North of Russia and the White Sea coast.
