Flowers and fruits – Ivan Fomich Khrutsky. Oil on canvas. 66.3 x 89.2 cm

   A magnificent artistic masterpiece was written by I.AT. Khrutsky! Still life is written in the style of classicism. The canvas depicts a beautiful plot with a natural composition. Bright combinations of flowers and fruits give her special uniqueness! In the center of the picture in a beautiful vase on the table there is a bouquet of flowers from peonies, astra, irises, cornflowers and ears of corn. White, pink, yellow, red, blue flowers are full of their splendor, perfectly combined with each other and complementing each other. A elegant dark green vase with animal silhouettes carries aesthetic delight! Bouquet is revived by branches with green leaves and juicy fruits lying next to the water.

   To the left of the vase is a small wicker basket with peaches and apples. Next to her are two appetizing halves of peach. Such their location is not accidental. They invite you to the autumn fruit collection. On the right are large yellow pears, lemon and a large orange pumpkin. Fruits exude a sweet aroma that fills the whole room. The beautiful pumpkin has to the arrival of autumn, diluting the picture with warm colors of the outgoing August. This month is generous for the harvest! Behind the pumpkin is a glass decanter in harmony with composition. The plot class captivates with its uniqueness.

   In the background in the box lies ripe, juicy grapes. The rods overflow and shine from sunlight. Above it you can see wheat ears standing in a vase with flowers. They symbolically decorate the bouquet and carry the shades of the life of the field. Cornflowers give the bouquet a modest simplicity, lost in the splendor of garden flowers. A glass of water and a slice of lemon floating in it give an extraordinary freshness to still life. I want to drink this water with a pleasant sour cream, enjoying an excellent bouquet!

   The artist talentedly depicted a still life, saturating the work with bright colors. The brush master put a lot of work into her. Ivan Khrutsky loved nature very much and devoted many interesting topics to her in his work. She was for him a piece of the soul and a poetic object of inspiration. Perhaps he painted a charming composition from nature, including exquisite color scales in each element. His creation is brilliant and complete. The picture is made in sunny tones of the end of the summer season and the approach of autumn. A rich and generous crop is in a great mood!

   Art work gives light, good, love! She warms with her beauty and harmony. It is nice to look at her, admiring the beautiful! The artist created a divine miracle on the canvas. The picture gives a wonderful impression! It heals from anxiety and depression, normalizes the psycho-emotional background. Its colors favorably act on the nervous system, charging the body with positive energy. An artistic masterpiece will look great in the home interior of the living room and work cabinet, creating a wonderful atmosphere of tranquility and prosperity.
