Jozef Chelmonski owed his Parisian career to his celebrated horse-drawn "troikas" and "foursomes", which appear to rush straight at the spectator, and which were regarded by the local buyers as picturesque and exotic. [...] the evolution of paintings by Chelmonski, who abandoned Parisian life and settled in a country estate near Lowicz. Here his art slowly rid itself of anecdotes and facile effects, and became increasingly permeated by admiration for Nature in all of its symptoms, even most modest, and expressed love of Nature and its life, reflected in each blade of grass, flock of soaring cranes, or birds seeking shelter during a winter storm.
