Oak Grove by Mikhail Konstantinovich Klodt

Oak Grove by Mikhail Konstantinovich Klodt

The picture is not built according to academic rules: there are no long-range plans, and the near and middle ones are spelled out with equal care. In connection with the fact that the emphasis is put on the life of the forest, there arises a detailed descriptiveness of particulars that seem to exist by themselves without being united by color. Nature is shown to be lived by a man, but it is still extra social.

In the depiction of a poor village hut, the author’s attitude is not visible. From how, with equal attention, the artist writes out foliage, bark, grass, earth, logs, trunks, one can conclude that he can not yet embrace nature wholeheartedly. And the same black and white working out of details shows that the main thing is not isolated from the secondary. It seems that nature posed for the artist in his atelier.
