Description of the painting by Isaac Levitan Evening

Isaac Levitan’s painting “Evening” is a rather early work of his. The picture has a rather sad appearance, having a moral background for the period from the life of Levitan, when, even when he was still far away, fate was such that he became an orphan.

This will be fully reflected in the colors and colors, as this, and other paintings written after. Its interesting color, even despite the clearly monochromatic color range, which is not very dazzling with colors and colors, resemble even a slight accent, drama, but in the meantime the grandeur of this picture.

Of course, the sad atmosphere of the passing day prevails on the canvas, the sun sets over the horizon, and evening comes, this is the main idea of ​​the painting. But the nuances of space, which are insignificant at first glance, and even the church in the background, make the image of the picture more complete. A strip of cloud rolls over the sky, as if covering it with a warm blanket and preparing it for sleep.

Fog creeps over the river, like a soft pillow rolling up to both banks. The slope of the hill is covered with lots of green and yellow grass and trees. Silent silence and tranquility makes you think about the high, looking at this landscape. A well-chosen viewpoint allows us to consider, in fact, a fairly large space, and cover the entire outskirts with our eyes.

A single, but rather large house stands right on the very bank of the river, most likely this building somehow relates to the cathedral, which is located a little distance away. Untouched and virgin land, involuntarily beckoning to themselves glance.

A completely calm river, also preparing for sleep, without emitting on its surface even the slightest ripple, absolute calm. The tranquility of the river is transmitted to all nature and encompasses the neighborhood, thereby transmitting these sensations to the viewer.
