Vladimir Gavrilov, who worked with enthusiasm in any painting genre, paints the landscape “Autumn” in 1971. In the picture the artist depicted the time of golden autumn, the field and the forest. The viewer offers a magnificent beauty of the landscape.
Autumn has already come into its own, many trees stand in red and yellow crowns, and some are almost bare. The landscape is bright, but a little sad, it’s still autumn time – the time for nature and life to wilt. Gavrilov is trying to make his autumn not sad. He is glad to fall, the whole picture is permeated with warmth and sunshine. The main colors of the picture: gold, green and blue are the colors of life and happiness.
The riot of colors on the canvas amazes the viewer. Greenish bright grass is replaced by a wide yellow field. In the background is a picture of a thick tall forest. The trees in the forest are already dressed in purple, which gives them a special beauty and autumn charm. The artist paid special attention to the sky. It is depicted as a transparent blue, high, with clusters of scattering clouds.
The landscape, written by Gavrilov, is familiar and dear to the Russian people. The tranquility of the autumn day, the shining sun, still warming the fields, the grove and the forest – all this is painfully familiar to every viewer. This explains the popularity of this work of art. In the field, near the forest, a group of small birches grows. This picturesque tree has lost almost all the leaves and now absorbs the last warmth of Indian summer. Although the sun itself is not shown in the picture, its rays are clearly visible, falling on a yellow field and thin birch trees.
Vladimir Gavrilov was the first Soviet impressionist artist who wrote many paintings in this genre, which include his “Autumn”. His magnificent works are exhibited in Moscow, in the Tretyakov Gallery. “Autumn” is distinguished by subtlety, grace of brushstrokes and lines, calm mood.
