The painting of the Russian artist Fyodor Vasilyev “Volga Lagoon” depicts a summer gloomy day. The artist loved to travel along the Volga and therefore wanted to show us all the experienced experiences in this picture.
Volga became for Vasiliev a source of consumption of various impressions. The tranquility and majesty of the coastal lagoon amazed the author and it is the vastness that fills the canvas. Despite the large dark clouds, the picture looks flawless, the whole range of colors is expressed very clearly and beautifully, the author uses mostly sandy-yellow and gray-white colors.
Thick dark clouds looming over the coastal lagoon and the hill in the background, it seems that a thunderstorm is expected soon. The artist loved nature with all his heart and was very worried about its changes, and he tried to show these changes in all its glory.
Vasiliev sought to show us his deep inner world, beauty and love, storms and experiences on this wonderful canvas. The painter could see and distinguish the nature of trees, bushes, grass, he tries to show all the details, even the hill in the background covered with grass looks impeccably beautiful, we see its curves and uneven edges clear and fresh. The author carefully watched nature, making such a masterpiece of art.
Also on the canvas we can see a slightly noticeable rainbow. Rainbow is one of the most amazing phenomena in nature. Even through the thick clouds it appears and looks fabulous, the picture shows that the rainbow appeared before the coming thunderstorm and rain. Vasiliev wanted to show us the pre-storm state of nature and all the grandeur of the coastal lagoon, and we dare to notice that he succeeded.
