Overview of the painting :
Spring – Sergey Arsenievich Vinogradov. 1911. Cardboard, butter. 95.5×95.5
Sergey Arsenievich Vinogradov (1869-1938) belongs to a generation of artists whose work is inextricably linked with the traditions of landscape painting laid down by I. AND. Levitan. Nature as the source of all human feelings and moods by the brush of the painters of the Union of Russian Artists association was imprinted by a lyrical, informative, full of trepidation and experience. The theme of life in harmony and complete merging with Russian land will become central to the work of Vinogradov. Master of solar plots, he almost always chose special majeure in the sound of the state of nature.
The “spring” of the artist conquers with sincerity the experience of joy from the onset of the first warm days. The “cartinism” of everyday motive is achieved due to this excited mood from the beauty of an unpretentious corner of the village seen in nature. Plenary painting, which is the basis of the canvas, with color brightness and free texture, the smear transmits the looseness of the remaining snow, the density of multi-colored grass. Solar glare on the house and blue shadows on the ground create an unusually vital effect. Sleeping green needles and fragile apris of young tree branches as if freshened, freed from the frosty winter. Inhaling the first jets of spring air, nature rejoices in anticipation of its renewal.
