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.
