Levitan Isaac wrote in 1884 his famous painting “The Bridge. Savvinskaya Sloboda”. He once again proves that he is able to convey beauty in the most ordinary things. Composing life and natural beauty, the author goes wonderful live work. The color scheme is in perfect harmony with the feeling and conveys a sunny day. The artist uses yellow shades, a bit of green, grays and blues.
Especially skillfully managed to convey the natural reflectivity of water. On the bridge we see shadows made in purple hues. Under the wooden beams one can see green foliage, although everywhere she has already managed to turn a little yellow from the scorching sun. Paint on a wooden surface lay special strokes and this is clearly visible when approaching. Due to this study acquires its own character and fascinates anyone who came to the canvas.
In the background there is a non-ordinary village building, but it does not spoil the appearance. On the contrary, the picture acquires its own perfection and simplicity. You can feel that the air in this area is pleasant and very soft. And the sun’s rays seem to pass through the entire canvas and reach the viewer. It becomes clear that the author was serene and calm when drawing “The Bridge. Savvinskaya Suburb”. We can say that he felt a sense of happiness. This can be seen on a sunny and warm day.
Of course, the main place and the key is the bridge itself. This inconspicuous, but at the same time very entertaining. The artist plays with the light and tries to convey in the colors all the shadows and games of sunlight. This is not an easy picture, it depicts the lyrics and admiration for the usual way of life in the most ordinary village. No fictional buildings, everything is painted as the author saw. Landscape takes pride of place in the Tretyakov Gallery.
