Description of the painting by Wilhelm Purvita Last Snow

Purvit depicts the early spring. This time is really wonderful. The snow has already melted in places, exposing the bare ground. Trees are standing with bare branches and waiting for the arrival of this heat.

In the foreground we see a hilly landscape with rare trees. Right behind the hill is a wooden house. If we look further, we will see a whole range of hills.

Impressive mastery of landscape painter. He manages to convey the special charm of a seemingly ordinary picture of nature. Before us is a really lively picture, impressive with its special relief. Every detail is incredibly tangible and alive.

The artist skillfully uses tones to convey the snow. He is not just white, but pinkish and yellowish. The bluish shadows that cast trees, cut through the snow-covered areas and those that have already managed to free themselves from this cover. The sky is bluish gray with white clouds. We do not see the sun. But it is precisely it that illuminates almost all the details of this landscape. The picture is all filled with special light and warmth.

Purvit notices a special charm in the familiar picture of early spring. We feel that the artist truly admires this beauty and seeks to convey this feeling to all of us. He seems to be saying: stop and look around. You will be able to see a lot of interesting and grand where there was simply no notice of it before.

The mastery of this master of painting is that he not only notices the quiet beauty, but also, with the help of skillful selection of colors and special organization of space, creates a real masterpiece.

The picture was painted in the 19th century, but it seems to be pushing the space apart. She is out of time. Nature is gorgeous always. Not everyone can see this, but everyone needs to strive for it. Only then will you understand the true meaning of life and feel complete unity with the natural world.
