On the creation of paintings Levitan spent two years – from 1893-1895. To date, the picture is in the Tretyakov Gallery, where anyone can see it breathe the smell of autumn.
In his painting “Autumn Landscape with a Church,” the author captured a small church located on the edge of the forest. She hid already yellowed trees, dropping their foliage. The church is painted in traditional light colors. The walls are white, and the small raised dome is painted green, symbolizing calm and peace.
The artist in his picture could depict precisely the autumn nature. It is cold, but at the same time, very lively. All paints in which the canvas is made cannot be called bright. They are rather dull in the autumn, bringing cold and sadness.
On the right are two lonely trees, almost completely lost foliage, while the grass in the forest has not yet had time to turn yellow. They convey to the viewer the pleasant autumn sadness that the artist wanted to show. In this picture, time seems to stop so that the viewer can enjoy the autumn calmness to the end.
