The masters that worked at Lukutin's and Vishnyakov's lacquer factories came from the peasants and while referring to the works of Russian and foreign artists they transformed them on the basis of their own imagination and experience. This led to the creation of genuine and hearty works. In the end of the 19th century the work of the miniature artists was greatly influenced by the Itinerant Artists group.
