Overview of the painting :

June Day – Isaac Ilyich Levitan. 1890s. Oil on canvas. 43.5×61

   Summer paints in all their diversity set the tone for work. The edge of the rusty field is adjacent to a small piece of the natural field. The strict monotony of the young cornfield and natural beauty – as if specially placed nearby, flooded with the generous sun, under one bottomless blue sky. Roby, trepidation smears make up the crown of a lonely birch and the edges of the forest. Precisely selected numerous colors of meadows create a fun, carefree atmosphere of work. Some movement is felt sensably – a summer fresh wind.

   In this work, the impression made on the author of the work of the French impressionists is so clearly present. At the same time, the master not only skillfully uses the methods of the masters, but also brings to his work a very special sound of colors and composite finds.
