Khrutsky’s still lifes are really surprising. He tries to give his work a fairly complex composition. A huge amount of vegetables and fruits gather on his canvas in a bizarre manner.
It must be remembered that the artist came up with paintings. He never wrote them from nature. That is why his canvas is simply bursting with fruits and vegetables. The ripening time of the fruits collected in one still life is different, so they simply can not lie on the same table. The same can be said about flowers.
His paintings are truly fabulous. Most contemporaries of the painter wanted their talented painter's still lifes at home.
Before us is one of such unusual works. Khrutsky highlights a bouquet of flowers. It consists of peonies with large petals, luxurious roses, saturated irises, tulips, ears of corn and stems. It occupies the entire center of this canvas. A basket with fruits and berries is to the right of the bouquet.
Here is an ordinary glass in which water is poured. A slice of lemon was dropped there. This part is necessary in order to emphasize the density of the ceramic product.
The viewer sees real abundance. The artist does not spare juicy colors in order to portray fruits, berries and flowers as naturally as possible. They are so tangible that it seems enough to reach out and you can try the fruit you like.
The background in the picture is deliberately darkened. This is necessary in order to emphasize the ripeness of berries and fruits and the splendor of fresh flowers. The picture creates a joyful mood in the audience. It is all imbued with bright colors that are pleasing to the eyes.
The painter was able to create truly impressive still lifes. He is a true master, subtly sensitive to the colors of nature and able to choose the ideal tones in order to portray fruits and flowers as naturally as possible.
