Levitan absorbed in his work all the best from Ostroukhov, Serov and Korovin and other friends, created his own style, which they began to call the style of the Russian landscape, and rightfully began to be considered “Levitan.” Levitan was one of the most significant Russian and European landscape painters of the 19th century.
The grief and joy of that time were absorbed in his art, he embodied his creative quests in lyrical images of Russian nature. Works of Levitan enthusiastically evaluated his contemporaries, who considered his paintings – landscapes of mood, which are surprisingly true and reliable. For all the time of his creative activity, he created several thousand sketches and paintings, with absolute certainty of his work can be called – the standard in painting landscapes. Native nature inspired this artist to create beautiful paintings. The painting “In the Park” Isaac Levitan wrote in 1880. At the top of the canvas is the sky.
It is covered with airy white clouds, the sky is amazingly beautiful, blue. Summer still reigns, walking in the park, you can imagine how far in the distance the evening bells of church bells can be heard, which flies over the trees, the river. In the central part of this exposition there is a river, in the water of which trees are reflected. You look at her blue and gray shades, and penetrate the serenity of this picture, her summer landscape conquers with its magical charm. The main emphasis is on almost fallen birches, and the pines that stand behind them and rise above them.
Isaac Ilyich Levitan in any of his work managed to find the extraordinary depth of nature, which is intertwined with the foundations of the life of a Russian person.
