Painting by AK Savrasov “Proselyok”

In the development of Russian landscape painting AK Savrasov played an outstanding role, raising the art of depicting nature to a tremendous height. Very subtle and penetratingly able to convey the artist any state of nature native land.

The motif chosen by Savrasov for writing the “Proselyok” film, at first glance seems very simple and uncomplicated. Well, what can be interesting here: a dirty, rain-drenched road, stretching out into the distance, old winds and fields on the horizon stretching toward the cloudy sky. And yet Savrasov manages to give an elusive charm and charm to this unattractive appearance, which, thanks to the skill of the painter, causes not discouragement, sadness and sadness, but joy, cheerfulness and triumph. It seems that the rain cleansed nature, watered the rich colors and bread, and puddles on the road, and the trees – and everything began to play, lit up from within with a wealth of internal manifestations. The rays of the sun, like the wizard’s wonderful fingers, transformed the earth, made even the road slush unrecognizablely beautiful, multicolored.

When creating the landscape “Prosselok” Savrasov not only showed his amazing artistic skill, but also revealed to us an inexpressibly rich world of colors, poetry and even the intimacy of various states of nature. The artist teaches us to comprehend the beautiful in all its manifestations; his works are imbued with deep lyricism, spiritualized and filled with infinite love for their native land.
