Description of the painting by Julius Klever Forest

Picture Clover “Forest” amazes the viewer with its realism. Looking at her, it seems that you are considering a photo. The picture shows a thicket of forest. It is unlikely that a person’s foot often walks here – the wilds look too impassable and gloomy.

A misty haze spreads over the ground. Because of the shroud, neither the sky, nor the horizon, nor the distant trees are visible. One can see only the tops of old fir trees, towering above the mist and dissolving in it.

In the foreground – a small part of the forest marsh. It was overgrown with grass and sedge, in most of the forest almost imperceptible, and therefore represents a great danger to the random traveler. Behind the marsh lies a fallen birch. The roots of this tree rise on the smooth surface of the swamp water. It can be seen that the earth on the roots of a tree is completely damp – apparently, the tree fell not so long ago. The roots of the tree are reflected in the stagnant water. Who knows, life can not so long ago there was a hurricane.

A short distance away, no other tree, most likely a pine, can be seen between the trees. Over it flies several forest birds. Maybe someone scared them off. The forest in the picture is mixed, which is inherent in more least central Russia. Before the eyes of the reader appear and pine, and spruce, and birch. The forest is thick, shrouded in shrubs.

The color scheme of the landscape suggests the time of the year. In some places, already visible yellow grass and foliage – before us the end of summer or the beginning of autumn.

The landscape casts fears. Despite the fact that it is written in bright colors, the sensations from viewing it are rather gloomy. It would not be easy for someone who wandered into this thicket at that time. The uncertainty of the distant plan is frightening – it is not visible behind the fog whether there is an exit from the thicket, or further thicker thickets of trees await the traveler.
