In the Tretyakov Gallery


Last year I visited the Tretyakov Gallery, a museum of Russian pre-revolutionary and Soviet art. In this museum there is a large collection of paintings, as well as icons, collected by Pavel Mikhailovich Tretyakov. Especially memorable were the pictures of Vasnetsov, Levitan, Shishkin and Surikov. I was struck by the extraordinary color and vitality of these works of art. For example, when viewing the picture of Levitan, a desire appears for some time to move to the places that are depicted on the canvas, to breathe fresh air, the fragrance of pine resin and scarlet strawberries. The landscape seems like a magical vision. Moonlight illuminates the green lawn with silvery light, reflecting the pearl stars in the river surface. You can notice that the bright morning sunlight and the light of the setting sun give completely different shades to trees, lakes, grass and everything, that surrounds us. On the canvases of the artist everything comes to life, from the rain drizzling over the glade, to the small velvety mushroom that hides in the grass, drenched with summer rays of the burning sun. If you look closely, you can see among the crystal clear water and soft algae, the game of fast-paced fish and fussy water-givers. A warm note to the landscapes is made by the invisible presence of a man. Pictures of Levitan show all the beauty, the charm of Russian nature, hide in themselves a lot of secrets, warmth and kindness. A talented artist wanted people to love and protect the green world. a game of nimble fish and fussy water-men. A warm note to the landscapes is made by the invisible presence of a man.
