Alexander Mikhailovich Gerasimov was very warm and sincere about any manifestations of nature. In his work, landscapes and still lifes often come across. He was especially attracted by rainy weather, which inspires lyrical thoughts.
The picture is constructed in such a way as if we were looking out the window and together with the artist we were observing changes in nature.
Drops of rain flow down the glass, allowing you to “hear” their knock and smell freshness and renewal. In the foreground, a vase of flowers is shown, but it is harmoniously inscribed with the general background that the viewer does not distinguish it as a separate subject. The bouquet is depicted as alive, there is a feeling that you can touch it and feel drops on your hands. With light movements of the brush, all details, even the most insignificant, have been worked out.
The view from the window allows us to conclude that we are shown spring rain. Buds bloom, the grass turns green - all this does not obscure the gloomy cloud hanging over the house. Despite the abundance of cold shades, the picture warms the soul. The anticipation of spring, the movement of nature are fascinating, attracting gaze.
Not only the landscape is noteworthy, but also the atmosphere in which it is inscribed. Old window frames, shabby heck, dirty windows, dirty curtains - all this is part of the cottage. It has not been visited for a long time, because the trees are groomed, the branches beat against glass. And will the owners come? A simple vase, looking artless, speaks of a small income. Only weathered beds and brand new bushes speak of the presence of life.
The picture itself opens a window from small to a huge world, because if you look closely, a little at a distance, there is a lake and mountains. What is there in the distance? It remains only to rely on the will of fantasy. The landscape shows the familiar and close to us atmosphere, which disposes to philosophical thoughts about nature and its life cycle.
