The State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia

The summer of 1866 Shishkin spends in Moscow and works in Bratsevo together with Kamenev, his comrade on the Moscow School of painting and sculpture. The joint job with the artist of a landscape of the Moscow school sincerely keen by motives of flat Russian landscape, does not pass without leaving a trace. Except for light Shishkin's figures with the signature "Bratsevo", free from his held down academic manner, certainly, the picturesque etudes, uting by him were main, in one of which and the motive of a ripening rye field and roads which have served subsequently, in 1869 by a basis for a picture was embodied Noon in the Neighbourhood of Moscow - one of his first masterpieces.

Noon in the Neighbourhood of Moscow (1869) critics called "song of joy".

Representing a typical flat landscape of average Russia with golden rye fields, particularly entered distant plans, road going from depth, and high, open above ground by the sky with light clouds, the picture at the same time represents by the contents and theme, figuratively expressed through a landscape, of national life. Finishing herself the sixtieth years and way of reorganization of a creative method, she simultaneously becomes also application for the future creativity of the artist, truth, in the most part devoted to motives of a wood landscape, but in an essence of the figurativeness close all to the same healthy national basis.

He always preferred to draw daytime scenes, full of sunlight and life: Pine Forest in Viatka Province (1872), Rye (1878), Path in a Forest (1880), Oaks (1887), Coniferous Forest. Sunny Day (1895). His scrupulous reproduction of nature stood in sharp contrast to the academic canons of landscape painting. For his loving approach to detail some critics called his works colored pictures, which lack of life. But despite such attention to details Shishkin's paintings do not fall apart, but give full and finished impression.
