Pavel Grigorievich Grigoriev-Savushkin was a distinguished Soviet artist known for his work as a painter, graphic artist, graphic designer, and educator. He held the title of People's Artist of the Chuvash Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic and was a recipient of the K.V. Ivanov State Prize of Chuvashia. Grigoriev-Savushkin emerged as a prominent portrait painter in Chuvash professional fine art. Starting in the 1960s, he developed a series of painted and graphic portraits of Chuvashia's leading figures in literature, art, and science. As part of the “Rural Dawns” creative team, he created notable portraits of collective farmers during his visits to Chuvashia villages. He was also instrumental in creating a gallery of 92 portraits of veterans of the civil and patriotic wars in Yangorchino, marking a significant contribution to the artistic heritage of the region.

Augusta Moiseevna Spiridonova was a celebrated Soviet painter and an Honored Worker of Culture of the Chuvash Republic. Her landscapes, such as “Pond in Yangorchino,” were noted for their impressionistic quality and masterful spatial execution. Spiridonova's works often featured the Volga and Cheboksary, capturing the essence of the region with vivid depictions of the river and cityscapes. Her still lifes, showcasing everyday Chuvash objects like wooden utensils, pots, and national embroidery, were admired for their homely tranquility and warmth. These items were not mere historical artifacts for Spiridonova; they were part of her everyday life and cultural experience.
