When you look at the canvas of I. Levitan “Autumn day. Sokolniki ”, involuntarily you think:“ Did Levitan paint this picture? ”
Yes, here is the Levitan sky, high and deep. Huge white clouds are floating in the gray autumn sky. A damp haze is floating in the air. There is no rain, but it is about to happen.
Levitan pines, mighty, sky-high, standing by a high impregnable wall on both sides of the alley. The giant trees, covering themselves, protect the quiet autumn, hiding in the rare bright colors of foliage young maples standing at a distance from each other. Thin trees have not yet completely thrown off the yellow foliage. It is scattered in bright even spots along the park path.
This sandy path, yellow, like autumn itself, goes far into the distance, beyond the pine trees, into the sky. Already already falling foliage poured along its edges. It seems to frame the bright path. It lies between the greens of the grass that has not yet had time to dry out, on which the fallen yellow leaves also stand out.
The painting clearly shows a wide manner of writing. The artist clearly denotes tree trunks, their crowns, foliage. With the help of blurry colors, the airiness of the landscape is created, autumn dampness and silence are transmitted.
Throughout the canvas you feel a languid loneliness, inescapable longing and sadness. These feelings are emphasized by the dark figure of a woman walking alone towards the viewer. It is this figure that confuses connoisseurs of the landscape painter Isaac Levitan.
No, not the great master of nature paintings portrayed a woman in black. This was done by N. Chekhov, brother of the famous writer. Perhaps, having clearly felt the loneliness of a friend-artist, Nikolai Pavlovich decided to strengthen the impression by including a human image in the landscape.
Despite this discord and the “non-Levitan” manner of depicting Autumn Day. Sokolniki ”is the first painting by the famous artist, which was acquired by P. Tretyakov.
