Mausoleum of Gur-Emir. Samarkand by Vasily Vereshchagin

Mausoleum of Gur Emir. Samarkand by Vasily Vereshchagin

It is characteristic that, constantly working in the open air, Vereshchagin noticed color shadows, and the game of reflexes on objects, and blue tones of air haze, but he passed all this, fearing to “dissolve” architectural forms in air vibration, not purely plein air, but somewhat renewed conditionally-academic way.

He did not yield to the possibility of revealing purely optical sensations of the influence of the environment on objects, so as not to lose with them a clear and clear idea of a specific object of the image.
