The painting “Park Alley” was painted by Isaac Brodsky. Work on the canvas was completed in 1930. The central place in the picture is given to huge trees, apparently ash.
The branches of the trees lean toward the earth and at the same time stretch towards the blue clear sky, the trees themselves form a wide walkway along which people walk.
Outside, the weather is sunny, the park alley is well lit, but there are long shadows from the trees. Judging by these shadows, it is midday or afternoon.
Many people in the picture are hiding under the trees and busy talking. In the center of the canvas there are two children, they are busy playing and do not pay attention to others, the viewer does not see what these children look like, they have their backs turned to him and whisper about something among themselves, which looks quite natural.
Thanks to these children playing, it seems as if the viewer is not looking at the picture, but at the look that opens outside the window. One has only to step outside the door and plunge into the shady coolness of the alley.
The park alley is long enough, but the viewer does not see its end. The park is quite crowded, most likely, the artist worked on a painting on a holiday or a day off. An interesting fact is that most of the picture is reserved not for people, but for trees. The land and people occupy only 1/3 of the canvas, while the remaining 2/3 are dotted with green branches of trees.
Trees reach for the sky, trees are displayed as shadows on the ground, reading and walking people lean on the trees. It seems that these are people, and not trees are the complement of this canvas.
“Park Alley” is a light, and even a radiant picture, when you look at which every person has a good mood, you want to become part of this canvas and now also carelessly walk along the summer alley. The simplicity of the plot makes this picture even more attractive and realistic.
