Staritsa (Russian: Старица) is a town and the administrative center of Staritsky District of Tver Oblast, located on the Volga River, 77 kilometers (48 mi) from Tver, with population of 8,607 (2010). Staritsa located not far from Osipov's native Bezhetsky District. The town was established in 1297 under the name of Gorodok (Городо́к), lit. small town). Since the 15th century, the town has been called Staritsa. In the 15th century, the local principality was ruled by Ivan III's son Andrey, and then by Andrey's son Vladimir. While Ivan the Terrible had no children, Vladimir was regarded by boyars as his only heir. As the Tsar suspected Staritsa's ruler of plotting against him, Vladimir and his children were forced to take poison. The opulence of Staritsa during Vladimir's reign can be seen in the Assumption abbey. Later in 1775, Staritsa became a center of an uyezd.

Osipov especially liked to paint city Staritsa in winter. He was attracted by the preserved ancient Russian architecture and picturesque location of the town. In these trips his companions were artists Arseny Semionov, Vladimir Ovchinnikov, Alexander Naumov, Dmitry Buchkin, Vecheslav Monakhov.

For the first time the painting House with an Arch was exhibited in 1977 year in Leningrad at the common exhibition of Sergei Osipov, Arseny Semionov, and Kirill Guschin in Exhibition Hall of the Leningrad Union of Artists. After Osipov death the painting was shown on his solo exhibition in 1991 at the Exhibition Halls of the Leningrad Union of Artists.[1]

In 1995-1996 the painting was exhibited at The Russian Winter in Painting. Exhibition of works by Saint Petersburg Artists art show in Saint Petersburg in the Nikolai Nekrasov Memorial Museum.[2] In 2007 the «House with Arch» was reproduced and described among 350 art works by Leningrad artists in the book «Unknown Socialist Realism. The Leningrad School»,[3] published in Russian and English. In 2011 the painting House with Arch was described in article devoted to the 20th Anniversary of Sergei Osipov one man exhibition of 1991, published in St. Petersburg Art History Notebooks.[4] In the same 2011 «House with Arch» was exhibited at the 60th Anniversary Exhibition of Department of Painting of the Vera Mukhina Institute.
