Composition on Levitan’s painting “The hut in the meadow”

Due to his special sensitivity and nervous penetration, Levitan was able to absorb all the thoughts and feelings that burned his peers and comrades. Having made them in his individual, to him one inherent lyricism, he poured it all out in a long series of paintings that reflected the aspirations of a whole generation. Levitanov’s paintings are significant in that they are the result of collective creativity.

He was more serious, stricter and more important, he studied nature more systematically and, thanks to his enormous work, was better than anyone knew how to express the impression he was striving for. He was the greatest and most wise artist of the Russian landscape.
