Overview of the painting :

Golden autumn. Slobodka – Isaac Ilyich Levitan. 1889. Oil on canvas. 43x 67.2

   Isaac Ilyich Levitan is a master of landscape-setting, enriching the Russian landscape painting of the 1880-1900s with his picturesque and plastic searches and artistic images.

   Polotno “Golden Autumn. A Slobodka ”is written during repeated trips around the Volga, in the favorite place of Plyos. Volzhskaya at the clan more than once became the heroine of the paintings of Levitan. The most vivid autumn time, the feast of nature, sounds in the picture in a piercing chord. A slightly sad short-lived image of the fall of the females and contradictory. The life of the Russian village, a strip of yellowing forest and a huge sky space are full of grandeur and calm expectation of rainy and cold weather. The depicted hut and the passing road introduce an element of everyday life into the mood of the picture. Everything is subject to the natural course of changing seasons, the continuous cycle of nature’s life.

   Singer of the “buddy motive”, Levitan, continuing the lyrical line of landscape development outlined by his teacher A. K. Savrasov, with his work, opened a new page of art of the late 19th century.
