1863. Magnificent landscape, painted by a talented oil painter on canvas. Looking at such works, inevitably you begin to think that it is simply impossible to create such a thing. Physically not controlled by man. Klodt is a real undisputed master of a realistic landscape, and this picture is vivid proof of this. So clearly, clearly, carefully drawn all the nuances.
Every detail comes alive under the brush of the author, thanks to the naturalness and accuracy of image transfer. The main idea of the picture are oaks. A lot of mighty, tall and stunningly beautiful trees that make up the grove. Even the bark on the trunks of trees is depicted with all the cracks and grooves, grooves, growths. The artist thought out and portrayed everything.
The crowns of oaks are magnificent in their grandeur and pomp. Massive, voluminous, they cover a tree and make a person feel close to themselves completely insignificant and small. It is for such a contrast that the artist depicted rural children under one of the trees, two of whom sit on the grass under an oak tree in front of a stream, and one girl moves away from them along the path between the trees.
Against the backdrop of mighty oaks, they look tiny. The stream with a small wooden bridge across it is shown calm, without ripples on the water. This emphasizes quiet, calm weather. Reflections of oaks and coastal stones are traced in the creek. Somewhere in the distance, several cows graze, one of whom drinks water from a stream. On the left side of the picture, in the shade of trees, a small log cabin, without windows, was painted.
More like a neat and cute closet. In the background is a picture of the horizon line, where the sky and the endless expanses of Russian fields are found. The sky is quiet, light blue with small soft white clouds. The whole landscape is flooded with an even glow of sunlight. The overall impression of the picture is very good. She gives peace, tranquility, joy and admiration.
