Overview of the painting :

Rainbow – Alexey Kondratyevich Savrasov. 1875. Oil on canvas. 45×56.5

   The work of Alexei Kondratievich Savrasov (1830-1897) is a transitional stage in landscape painting of the 19th century. Having freed her from the canons and ideals of Western art, the artist turned to national motives, looking for in the simplest corners of Russia a scanting charm and causing elevated awe in front of nature.

   The picture “Rainbow” is devoid of the effect of panorama and the features of sentimentalism. The realistic manner of landscape design, the selection of a simple compositional angle with a tree sour from dirt and a village towering on a hill give the impression of a lively, natural nature seized by the “piece” dressed in frame. Complicated tonal transitions, the non-small color scheme and the artist’s supercubility in transmitting the emotional state of nature turn the canvas into an expressive “tell” About the consonant souls of Russian land and the selflessly loving person.
