Oh I like that. Reminds me a bit of the style of Ford Madox Brown.

I can see that. Kustodiev's palette is brighter, and his mood less ambiguous, but yes, there is a definite similarity. Kustodiev's stuff seems very happy... It's weird to compare the modern stereotype of Russian gloom and hardship with his cheerful visions. This one's pancake day, I think. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/04/1916_Kustodiev_Fastnacht_anagoria.JPG
