The picture is impressive. The artist captured the July night. At first glance, the landscape is not remarkable. But the painter managed to notice in everyday life some kind of secret. He does not just picture what he sees, but also puts his feelings. We look at nature through the eyes of Zhukovsky himself.
On the left is a house. In it a lonely window burns. It seems that it absorbed the colors that give us the summer sunset. On the right is a grove. The ink crowns of trees give the canvas some sort of fabulousness. There is no wind. Everything is quiet and drowsing in anticipation of a new day. For fairly rare trees you can see the blue ribbon of the river. She beckons us with her coolness.
Zhukovsky is a real master of colors. Its sky is not dark. It combines pink, yellow and lilac tones. The viewer does not feel gloomy. The artist was able to depict one of the July nights.
But this painting causes silent sadness. Everything around fell asleep, and only a lonely window burns. Why can not a person sleep? Perhaps he suffers from unrequited love or at this time he creates? On the true causes can only be guessed.
It is the window that becomes the most saturated spot in the picture. Thanks to her, the landscape becomes alive.
Zhukovsky saturates the canvas with dark colors, but it does not create a depressing mood. You can only feel a slight sadness.
An interesting picture is that the artist does not just represent something ordinary. His creation wants to be considered. Every detail here is multifaceted and full of meaning. The painter could catch the poetry of the summer night and pass it on to the canvas. Before us is a real masterpiece, impressive with an abundance of colors and accurate transmission of experiences.
This is not just a picture. She pushes viewers to reflections. Such an unpretentious plot becomes the embodiment of the deep philosophical thoughts of the artist.
