At the beginning of his career, he restored monuments of the 17th century, as a result of which he became imbued with monumental statics. He liked to write about ordinary, everyday life: peasant labor, songs, fishing and hunting. His painting was distinguished by special tenderness: it weakly applied shadows, was minimalistic in highlighting with gold and silver. His theme is everyday life, village life, he treated it with lyrics. He knew how to write rye especially well. Love for nature, land and work is read in his works.
