Forest (Shmetsk near Narva)

The artist is Shishkin

None of the Russian landscape painters gave, like Shishkin, such a meaning to the constant study of nature in countless studies. She was for him that life -giving and nutrient medium, thanks to which his talent was fully revealed. No approximation in the image of nature is the fundamental attitude of the master. Wherever Shishkin was spent by Summer, he immediately hurried into the forest, with deaf paths walked in search of fresh impressions and tiredly wrote sketches with the confidence and energy of a man who finally found himself in his elements. Irina Shuvalova. “What could be better than nature!”// Ivan Shishkin from the collections of the Russian Museum and the Tretyakov Gallery. SPb, 2008. With. 13.
