Russian Painting Postcard 2

I wasn't able to find the title of the painting on the postcard. I was, however, able to get the name of the artist. Mykola Kornylovych Pymonenko, sometimes spelled Pimonenko (b. March 9, 1862, Kiev - d. March 26, 1912, Kiev) was a Ukrainian painter. One of the most eminent Ukrainian genre painters Pymonenko was widely acclaimed in the Russian Empire. A number of Pimonenko's paintings are, in fact, generalized portraits which are the embodiment of a popular ideal of the working man. The artist also turned to the theme of peasant labour, depicting typical scenes from everyday life against the backdrop of a landscape.
