Description of the painting by Ivan Shishkin “Landscape”

The painting was painted in 1861

Shishkin was a true master of landscape, who knew how to find something special in the usual paintings.

We see the shore of a quiet lake. Foreground is a hut made of darkened wood. She seemed to have grown into the earth, and merged with nature. The greens of trees and grass are spelled out to the smallest detail. The artist uses a huge number of shades to convey the special beauty of a summer day. On the path to the lake are two. The viewer can only guess from the silhouettes that these are women.

On the other side you can see the roofs of a village. For them, Shishkin chose the most natural brown tones.

The sky is partially covered with clouds, but this does not create a gloomy impression. The sun illuminates all the clouds from the inside, giving them a soft pink tint. Although the day is not clear, an oppressive impression is not created. A very bright feeling is born in our soul. We feel close to nature and learn to see beauty in inconspicuous.

Shishkin depicted an absolutely familiar picture that he saw every day. It would seem that it is special. But in this everyday life, the artist managed to see the special charm of nature, which becomes one with man. It is important to understand it and feel incredible harmony.

From early childhood, the painter communicated with nature and sought to capture it as accurately as possible. Its amazing landscapes surprised contemporaries and continue to amaze everyone until now. He is a true master who, as clearly and vividly as possible, prescribed every detail. Everything is important to him. The beauty of nature in its integrity.

Everything is significant in Shishkin’s landscape. Every detail sounds new, and warm colors create a great impression. We so want to be there: on the shores of a majestic quiet lake and breathe clean air with our full breasts.
