Art is an integral part of the spiritual culture of mankind. Without accustoming to him, a person will not have a moral spiritual support in life, he will misunderstand various life problems. In other words, art not only educates a person, but also develops his worldview. In his text, Anton Chekhov touches on the problem of the influence of art on man. The author depicts this problem in describing the trip of husband and wife to the picture gallery and in the further reflections of Julia Sergeyevna.
The problem considered by the author is social because the correct perception of art is an important part of the development of society. Indeed, the introduction of man to art not only brings up various spiritual qualities in him, but also develops his social self-awareness. Actual this problem is then, that in our time most people do not perceive art and do not want to understand it. For example, for schoolchildren, of course, it is more important to spend time on entertainment than to take a book and, having read it, to get imbued with its ideological content. However, those who are interested in the beautiful, very often wrong or dry perceive art, an example of such a person is the husband of Julia Sergeyevna. The problem of the influence of art on man can force the reader to rethink his attitude towards him. This is because it becomes clear to the reader, that any art can not be superficial, and it necessarily carries in itself a deep semantic load. The author of this text shows the actuality of the problem he is considering by combining the perception of the paintings of the Laptevs.
The reader is convinced of Aleksei Laptev’s disparaging attitude to the picture on the basis of his words to his wife: “This is Shishkin’s forest…. He always writes the same thing…”. The author shows how elated Julia is from the picture, this is confirmed by the exclamation intonation of the sentence: “How well it is written. Do you notice how quiet it is here?” The position of Chekhov is manifested in a dualistic attitude towards the person depicted. For example, the author in the description of the house Laptev notices that at home he had pictures of larger sizes, but bad; The good are badly hanged. In addition, the writer from both sides describes Alexei Laptev: “… timid in life, he was brave at art exhibitions.” Thus, the author wants to convey to the reader that a person should peer into art
in the literal sense of the word and see even in the pictures a little more,
It is difficult not to agree with the author of the text, certainly, that art correctly influenced a person, it is necessary to look deeply into it and understand what is hidden in it, what kind of intention the author of this or that work of art pursues. I would like to believe that people like Laptev will still correctly perceive creativity in the future. Scientists, psychologists have long argued that music can have a different effect on the nervous system, on the tone of a person. It is generally accepted that Bach’s works enhance and develop intelligence.
Beethoven’s music evokes compassion, cleanses the thoughts and feelings of a person from the negative. G. Uspensky in his essay “Straightened” to the problem of the influence of art on man. In it, the author describes how the ordinary statue acted on him, and how she changed his world view. In the life of man, the role of art is very high. Therefore, you should treat it more deeply and more seriously.
