As soon as this work became available to the public, disputes do not subside around it. Some believe that the author brilliantly showed the real life of the church in the Russian village, while others accused the artist of bias and an attempt to humiliate Orthodoxy. Indifferent this work of the artist did not leave anyone. Before us is a "drunk" religious procession, passing at the end of the Easter service. Participants, apparently, do not go into the first house anymore and managed to "treat themselves" well. The attention of the viewer is riveted in the figure of a priest in festive vestments. Alcohol destroyed the man in him. The face is devoid of any expression, the eyes are almost invisible on the "drunk" face. The flock itself also matches its "shepherd". The young peasant woman, who sang a prayer loudly, seemed to be about to go in the opposite direction. The ragged old man next to her holds the icon face down, not paying any attention to it. On the porch of the house, the mistress is trying to bring her husband to sleep. Someone fell asleep under the porch. In the center of the picture are three peasants in festive attire. Two of them are drunk, the third, which is visible only from the back, is sober. It is amazing how the artist succeeded, having shown the back of his character, to make sure that every viewer is confident in the negative attitude of this character to what is happening. The action takes place against the backdrop of an early spring morning. Under the feet of the participants are the March mud and puddles, above them a cloudy, yellowish and equally dirty sky. The path to the church, visible in the distance, is very long. It is easy to imagine what the procession at the church gate will turn into.
