Cabbage and Willows by Victor Borisov-Musatov

Cabbage and Willows by Victor Borisov Musatov

A simple picture. The vegetable garden is the years of apprenticeship: first the drawings near the leaves, then the more and more distant plantings of the early cabbage. Far away casting merges into a wavy cloth. The end of studies is marked by the artist’s becoming, when the pupil is able to think in picturesque subjects. Paintings begin to carry spiritual content.

This is expressed by a number of trees, black willows growing along the far edge of the garden, rising into the sky. Behind the winds follows a wild meadow: an independent mastering of the new material by the artist. Behind him in the distance is a dense forest belt: a picture of a mature master painter. The motif of the cabbage garden, as a period of apprenticeship, is found in Van Gogh, in Nesterov.
