I. I. Kozlovsky is a great artist who was very successful in painting still lifes. One of the popular works is the painting “Still Life”. The artist displayed a combination of fruit with pumpkin and flowers. Original autumn composition, gifts of nature. Still life is the decoration of the table. Wooden table top of incredible beauty handmade.
An abundance of fruit makes you want to try juicy fruits. On the table are grapes, currants and plums. The main role is played by a pumpkin, which is cut. Her bright flesh speaks of the ripeness of the fruit and beckons to tasting. It is seen that the fruit is fresh and juicy. Flowers successfully complement the composition and give it a mood. The play of light allows you to see fruits in various colors. The colors of the berries set off each other, and the bright pumpkin emphasizes the variety of shades. The fruits are juicy and seemingly transparent; even a bone can be seen in plums.
The artist shows the wealth of the Russian land, its priceless gifts. Fruits are depicted so realistic that you can literally feel their taste. Near the pumpkin are roses, they favorably emphasize the fruit. Flowers are beautiful and fresh, dew drops can be seen on the petals. It seems that the fragrance of these flowers envelops the autumn gifts and complements the overall picture. Flowers seem to exude the sun’s rays, thereby illuminating the fruit and filling them with fabulous energy. Grapes slightly closes the pumpkin, as if protecting it.
The artist could accurately convey the mood with the help of fruit compositions. He realistically showed the diversity of the gifts of nature. Looking at the paintings of Kozlovsky, I want to try the composition, so appetizing the artist manages to display the ripened gifts of nature.
The author attached great importance to his still lifes. He prescribed every element, every berry. Clear and small strokes make the image pronounced, and a dark background emphasizes the brightness of the color and places the necessary accents.
