This work of Somov Konstantin Andreevich, which was presented to the public in 1905, presents a spring landscape. The picture is part of a series of four works devoted to the four seasons. The work is written in modern style.
The painting depicts a sunny spring day. Work literally “breathes air.” Somov Konstantin Andreevich is rightly considered a master of the open-air. The horizon line is very low, so the sky occupies most of it. It seems that the artist has depicted not an early morning, but a day that slowly reaches for sunset. About this we are told by air clouds, on which glimpses of the setting sun can be seen.
The bottom of the picture is the grass. We see that the vegetation is low, early, so when writing the work the artist chose light shades of green. In some places you can see small white flowers, which seem to be patterned interspersed on a green canvas. The background is completely empty – nothing distracts attention.
In the center of the canvas depicts a couple of people – a man and a woman. Their slender figures are dressed in bright, elegant clothes. The woman is wearing a pink-purple dress, slightly below the knees; on his head a cap. The man went for a walk in a jacket of a dark green color.
A young couple is on a neat path that forks and leads to the depth of work. In the distance you can see a small woods. The artist deliberately does not draw the forest, but depicts only his silhouette. To the left of the walking couple there is a small stone monument. The shape of the monument is unusual, resembles a small spire.
In the foreground are trees. The artist paid these plants the most attention. Each branch and leaf is drawn. You can see that in the right side of the work there are small, neat birch trees, which are slightly swaying in the breeze, which is why the thin twigs leaned to the left. On the central trees, at the very top of the work, Somov depicted three birdies.
