In the summer of 1873 the comparatively young architect and artist Victor Hartmann, one of Mussorgsky's closest friends, died. Half a year later a memorial exhibition of Hartmann's work was held in St. Peterburg, Among the visitors was to be found Mussorgsky, full of admiration for and struck by the loss of his dead friend, already somewhat stricken by alcohol and with the catalogue in his hand. Hartmann had been a charming and lovely person who, above all else, shared Mussorgsky's intense interest in the Russian people's life and culture. This may explain why a number of insignificant drawings could inspire Mussorgsky to produce one of his best works, a work which also has a special value as a completely successful piece of programme music.
