The artist is Levitan
This is a canvas with its slowed rhythms of life, full of unaccountable melancholy and a sense of homelessness, is a specific landscape and at the same time a “portrait” of the artist’s soul. The view of the Moscow Region is depicted – a slowly flowing full -flowing river with brown groves on still snowy shores under a gray, cloudy sky. The painter found in kind of conditions corresponding to his own internal mood and experiences of the people of the era „end of the century “. This is largely achieved by the musical subtlety of a coloristic solution – the exquisite harmony of gray -haired, brown and white tones.
