Description of the painting by Arkady Plastov Winter

The picture Plastova “Winter” depicts a winter landscape. The landscape is depicted in a special technique of wide strokes. The picture does not carry a sharply realistic image. However, the canvas carries expressive, vivid images.

Before the gaze of the viewer appears winter forest. There are almost no leaves on the trees, so it seems that the forest is very rare. However, in the distance, in the background, you can see what a dense and large forest is behind.

There is snow everywhere. Such pure white snow with a shade of blue can be seen only in the forest. Nowhere else can you see such pure, fresh snow. Here and there snow is crushed.

The canvas depicts two horse carts that move one after the other. Perhaps noble people decided to go hunting in the winter forest, and perhaps this is just a horse ride in the frosty sunny weather. The blush on the cheeks of the character indicates that the walk has been going on for a long time. The man in the wagon is dressed casually – hastily thrown over hat and a buttoned coat.

The picture leaves the viewer only positive emotions. On a bright snow-white sheet of snow, the sun’s rays fall, thanks to which the snow sparkles. One feels the joy of the characters depicted in the picture – people in carts enjoy a walk, enjoy the fresh, frosty air and clean, untouched nature.

In the foreground is a dog. She looks at the wagons and people with some kind of longing. It is not entirely clear whether this is their dog. Perhaps it is a stray dog ​​that lives in the forest. Now, having met people, she remembered the once happy life among people.

The viewer will surely feel the breeze of the frosty breeze. Most likely, he will remember his last walk in the frost, the frosty air that tingles the skin and fills the lungs.
