The picture is impressive. The artist captured the July night. At first glance, the landscape is unremarkable. But the painter managed to notice some mystery in everyday life. He not only depicts what he saw, but also puts in his feelings. We look at nature through the eyes of Zhukovsky himself.
On the left is a house. It has a lonely window. It seems that it absorbed those paints that the summer sunset gives us. On the right is a grove sleeping. Ink crown trees give the canvas some fabulousness. There is no wind. Everything calmed down and slumbers in anticipation of a new day. For fairly rare trees you can see the blue ribbon of the river. She beckons us with her coolness.
Zhukovsky – a true master of colors. His sky is not dark. It combines pink, yellow and lilac tones. The viewer does not feel gloom. The artist was able to portray one of the July nights.
But this canvas causes a quiet sadness. Everything fell asleep all around, and only the lonely window was burning. Why can’t a person sleep? Perhaps, he suffers from unrequited love, or at this time he creates? One can only guess about the true causes.
That window becomes the most saturated spot in the picture. Thanks to her, the landscape becomes alive.
Zhukovsky fills the canvas with dark colors, but at the same time it does not create a depressing mood. You can only feel a slight sadness.
An interesting picture is that the artist does not just depict something ordinary. I want to consider his creation. Every detail here is multifaceted and full of meaning. The painter was able to catch the poetry of the summer night and pass it on to the canvas. Before us is a real masterpiece, impressive with an abundance of colors and accurate transmission of experiences.
This is not just a picture. She pushes the viewers to think. Such a simple plot becomes the embodiment of the deep philosophical thoughts of the artist.
