People who are familiar with village life and the life of provincial cities, visiting the exhibition of Yuri Mikhailovich, understand that the happiness and tranquility of the human soul is far from the city bustle and asphalt. Kuznetsov’s paintings are filled with vitality, the joy of being. And whatever he writes, goodness and beauty prevail everywhere. This goodness and beauty are not eternal, but they must survive through our labors and efforts.

Untouched lakes, forest thickets, fairy-tale primeval places and the perception of nature were the themes and motifs of the mature Kuznetcov style which the artist called a mystical landscape
