Description of the painting by Nikolai Krymov Out of the window

The painting shows a wall and a window opening on it. And in the window you can see the green foliage of the trees and the windows of the houses located opposite.

The author creates an artistic script with the help of color accents. In this way, the artist seeks to show what is important in the picture and what should be paid attention to.

The window is a symbol of transition to the world of nature and freedom.

It is important to note that the window itself played an important role in the work of Krymov. Many landscapes of the author written just standing at the window or on the balcony. That is why the perspective of many paintings is located as if the viewer is looking at the landscape from a hill, which could well become a balcony or a window on the second floor.

The composition of the painting itself is not remarkable, but Krymov was able to fill this simple plot with deep symbolism.


can be traced in the color scheme of the picture. The wall has a gray cold shade.

Plain look and unremarkable angular structure, emphasize the limitations of stone boxes, in which more and more time a modern person spends. The author wants to emphasize everyday routine, which contrasts with a bright window full of light and life. But the landscape outside the window opposite is generously painted with warm flowers. To write the view from the window, Crimean uses saturated green, in general, all those colors that symbolize life, happiness and freedom.

Often Krymov is reproached for the fact that the colors of his paints are not bright, but faded and lifeless. However, not everyone knows that Nikolai Krymov did not live so richly and during his student days he could not always afford an expensive palette of colors. Therefore, the young artist had to use paints, which cleaned more prosperous students from their works. However, this did not affect the speedy recognition of Krymov among artists, because even poverty was not a hindrance to real talent.
