The canvas depicts a veranda, which is covered with withered leaves. It is sad and lonely to say goodbye to the summer, and the picture is filled with farewell and tight.
The artist captured the corner where the table and bench are located, surrounded by a side. All this is copied from real objects. On the table is a vase of glass, and in it are flowers, yellow, like autumn itself. Judging by the appearance and tidiness of the veranda, the house is large and hospitable, tidy. There are decent people living in it.
Immediately it seems a large family with running kids, who now and then scurry back and forth, amusing adults. Everyone is sitting, talking, and someone may be laughing. But it was yesterday… when it was still summer, and today – a dreary autumn has occupied its position by right. Ladies and gentlemen in beautiful evening dresses are presented – dresses with hats and frock coats with tuxedos.
But today it has become cold – and in the picture the leaves are clearly visible, fluttering in the wind, yellow-red color. They are like heralds of change and a quick winter. Apparently autumn is early, as the sun is still trying hard to warm the earth, but no one goes to the lonely veranda anymore, no one laughs and does not discuss the latest changes and news.
The sun’s rays penetrate the bench, the table, the same vase and flowers, which also tend not to dry out soon. nothing lasts forever… It makes no sense to resist and people living in this huge house know about it and accept autumn with its cold days, endless downpours and the distant sun.
Or maybe the residents of a beautiful house just went to the park for a walk? Therefore, they are not visible on the veranda… Although, it is unlikely that they are most likely just waiting for the onset of spring in order to crawl out of the warm and cozy house like ants in order to enjoy the new sun – so warm and clean. The picture evokes a little sadness and some kind of anxious expectation of change.
