Krymov’s painting The Yellow Barn was painted in the spirit of impressionism. In the center of the picture is a bright spot – a yellow barn. From the shade of the surrounding trees, the shed pours red. The roof of the building is lush green. A small yellow path trampled to the barn, which actively stands out against the background of a bright green, juicy meadow.
The barn has no windows, its door is open. The shed is already quite old, it has long lost its original yellow color, the paint has peeled off and exposed the perishable wood. Near the door is the owner of the barn. He leaned on the door and watched the horse, which led to the grazing of the barn. He is dressed rather poorly – a simple white shirt, loose trousers and a dark hat on his head. An expression of joy and pleasure is clearly visible on the man’s face. He looks at the horse with interest.
The animal is barely discernible among the dark shrubs. The horse is not young, most likely very tired. She reluctantly nibbles the grass in a static position.
The barn is surrounded by sprawling trees and dense shrubs. It seems that the barn stands in the middle of the forest. Behind the shed you can see a small clean pond, trees are reflected in its clear water.
Behind the shed is the horse owner’s house. It is small, painted white. And around – a lot of huge birches. In the distance you can see a thick forest, the rays of the sun illuminate the tops of large trees.
The picture has a deep meaning. The viewer understands that the artist wanted to convey to him. The joys of ordinary people in the small. The barn and the house are located in the middle of the forest, and life in such conditions is not easy. But the man is pleased with what he has. He is glad to see his only horse alive and healthy, glad that he can still help him in the household. He enjoys good weather and beautiful nature. This modest, simple peasant is happy for the life he has and does not require more.
