German artist Heinrich Vogeler (1872-1942) visited Karelia for the first time in 1925. In 1931 he and his family moved to the USSR for permanent residence.

The set of water-colours with the views of Solomennoye were created in 1933-34 during one of the frequent visits of the artist to Karelia.

In 1941 he (as a German) was deported to Kazakhstan, where died in 1942.
