Картины Жуковского пользовались большой популярностью, их охотно покупали коллекционеры и любители живописи, а на выставках они всегда привлекали массу зрителей.

В них ощущалась поэтичность и легкая элегическая тоска по уходящему в прошлое дворянскому быту, с его неспешными чаепитиями on the verandas and romantic evenings, when the open windows of the grand piano sounds or quiet Perebory guitar strings.

After the death of Zhukovsky, Levitan was one of the most famous landscape painters who worked in the impressionist style. He was proud that he called Russian impressionist, but did not like when his work is compared with the paintings of the French pioneers of the genre.
