Believe it, but for a long time it seemed like a photograph. I could not believe that this is the work of a talented artist Julius Klever. Actually, all his works are lit by his genius, his terrific talent. So on this canvas we are presented with an autumn park.
And this piercing sadness of this time of the year, some kind of gray suddenly makes itself felt. How did he do it? How did you achieve such an effect on the audience? Before us the swamp is not a swamp, but obviously a swampy little river, which by the spring may become a fast river, but now it has become shallow and resembles something swampy and muddy.
The landscape itself, the same is not particularly inspiring: dried trees, dried grass, lonely abandoned or forgotten boat. But in the distance you can see a white bridge, which is just in a rather cozy frame of trees that have not lost their summer splendor, but have just changed the color of the foliage. And there, in the distance, it’s just beautiful and flawlessly lyrical, and here ahead is somehow disgusting and sad. But why exactly what is ahead and interesting.
Drawing details, water surface, an unmistakable composition – all this is the true mastery of the master.
By the way, the works of Klever were not so well known, only now they have gained their popularity. There are not so many works of this artist, but they are worth it to admire and write about them, because very few people now use the technique that the artist wrote.
And yet autumn… Probably, this is the most favorite season of many famous painters, because there are quite a lot of canvases where autumn is the main character. Let it be sad or even gloomy, but still no-no, let it gleam hope like that of this artist on his canvas. Indeed, in the distance, where the bridge, the sun still shines brightly. And this means that everything is not so bad.
