INSIDE GREETING: After each storm comes sunshine, After the darkness, light. —With deepest sympathy.

To us, this beautiful rainbow arching over the lush field and the sun breaking through the clouds literally and figuratively offer a moment of respite amid a rainstorm, making it a most fitting image for a sympathy card. Arkhip Kuindzhi, the painter behind this masterpiece, demonstrates exceptional skill in capturing light, as evidenced by this piece. See this image as an art print!

Arkhip Ivanovich Kuindzhi, born in 1842 in the Yekaterinoslav Governorate of the Russian Empire, was a renowned Russian landscape painter celebrated for his mastery of light and color. After experiencing orphanhood at a young age, he embarked on a journey of self-education and artistic pursuit, initially working various odd jobs to sustain himself. At age 13–14, he ventured to Feodosia to study art under Ivan Aivazovsky's tutelage, although he primarily studied with Aivazovsky's student, Adolf Fessler. Subsequently, in St. Petersburg, he pursued independent studies and attended the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, eventually becoming a full member in 1893. A pivotal figure in the Peredvizhniki movement, he broke away from academic constraints to embrace realism and incorporate social commentary into his works. His paintings, characterized by their expressive use of light and color, garnered domestic and international acclaim. In his later years, Kuindzhi dedicated himself to teaching and scientific inquiry, and received numerous awards and honors, becoming a respected figure in the Russian art world.
