Baulin was an unsurpassed master of landscape with elements of architecture. He creates grandiose paintings, which beautifully depicts unusual buildings of different times. The artist manages to clearly convey the features of architecture.
Before us is the impressive work of the painter. He depicted the famous Church of the Intercession. This temple is a revered shrine. The church is small and modest enough. It was built and named after the Intercession. This holiday was traditionally celebrated in Russia. Many artists imbued with this quiet beauty. That is why you can see a sufficient number of paintings that depict the church.
Baulin takes a close-up. The viewer can see the church of the Intercession in great detail. Not a single detail escapes the painter’s workshop. If you look a little more closely, you can even see a fancy lace carving, which became a bright decoration of this building.
The shape of the building is quite unusual. This is a large square. In its center is a dome that rushes directly into the sky. It is hard to believe that this splendor was created in ancient times.
For the construction of the temple was chosen a picturesque place. According to legend, it was indicated by none other than Prince Bogolyubsky. A small hill rises in the middle of the Nerl. Further, endless meadows stretch that merge in the distance with a bottomless sky. This hill was specially poured. The fact is that in the spring sometimes a strong spill of the river occurs.
Baulin depicts a cloudy day. This painter was able to convey the darkness with the help of a masterful image of the sky. Color changes from blue (dark) to gray. The sun is closed by thick heavy clouds. This background allows the church to look more vivid. It seems to be a magical ray of sunshine that illuminates the darkness. The artist demonstrates that the temple in any weather will always accept, whatever the situation. You only need to believe in your own strength and follow the path of the righteous.
