He studied painting mainly independently and at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts (from 1868; a full member since 1893). He was co-partner of traveling art exhibitions, organized by Peredvizhniki (The Wanderers) — a group of Russian realist artists, who formed an artists' cooperative in protest of academic restrictions. In the mid-1870's, Arkhip continued to create his landscape paintings.

In his works, he fused the experience of the previous development of landscape painting and with his characteristic originality transformed Russian and European romanticism, the achievements of the French Barbizon school, the Impressionists and open a brand-new for that era decorative theatricality in easel paintings.
