Description of the artwork «Rainbow»

Rainbow one of my favorite images artist Alexei Savrasov. His rainbow – not decoration, in the picture it is important not only masterly possession of light and color, as Kuindzhi. Rainbow Savrasov – a window into the ineffablethe symbol of the inexpressible.

Before us peligrosovudu landscape, piercingly bright greens bathed in the waters of otherhouse shower, through the cloud-Laden sky trying to break through the sun's rays. In the film "rainbow", see favorite kurasovskiy move accurately captured the feeling that the next moment the sun will come out. Here the full force of their skill Savrasov as a colorist – as evidenced by the skillful combination of warm, reddish earth tones, emerald, mossy greenery and clear sky.

"Rainbow" like bared to the viewer. It seems that a fresh breeze coming from the paintings, the viewer "hear" polihronova special silence, broken is that rare bird trills Yes, knocking buckets on a yoke. Steps through the hill, connecting the front and at the back and doubles as a staircase to the viewer, as if drawing him deeper into the picture.

The landscape looks festive, with no procrasinate it is not – it seemed that nature itself is celebrating the end of a rain glittering over the expanses of the rainbow and the sun, the light of which the next moment will fill the heavens and the earth. The steps are carved right into the hill, is a farmer with a yoke. In the background – the squat huts. As usual Savrasov – landscape household, and from him the feeling not of life but of life, eternal, everlasting, shining in every detail. A kind of transformed through the vision of the artist romanticism, seeking the ideal in the far distance, and finding him everywhere, in everything, to which the gaze falls.

Landscapes Savrasov particular characteristic poignant lyricism, native Russian secret longing breaks through even in the light of his paintings. No wonder the artist considered the founder of Russian lyrical landscape. His disciple Levitansaid: "Savrasov tried to find in the most simple and ordinary those intimate, deeply touching, often sad features which so are strongly felt in our native landscape and so irresistibly act on the soul".
