Konstantin Korovin is a Russian artist of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He spent most of his life abroad, loved France, and lived in Paris. He drew inspiration from Russian decorative art, and later was close to the Impressionists. However, from the first paintings in it an individual style was guessed. Korovin is considered a master of plein air in Russian painting, the author of landscapes and genre paintings.
His works are realistic, he captures on them those moments of life that are beautiful only for a moment. Moskvoretsky Bridge was written in 1914. The picture is incredibly bright, full of liveliness, immediacy. K. Korovin managed to convey the feeling of a sunny day, the freshness of the world. The foreground of the painting is half empty, but thanks to a compositional discovery, a panorama of Moscow opens before us: various-sized houses, juicy tangerine-yellow signs, Kremlin towers and carved domes of the cathedral.
Architectural ensembles are spelled out more carefully, with love and knowledge of their features. The picture is dynamic, causes a lot of positive emotions. Looking at the cheerful tram, as if you hear the sound of wheels and the signal of a car driver “ding ding”. The bridge across the river is not empty. This is the connecting link between the shores, where life flows according to its own laws: people are in a hurry on business with string bags, bags and baskets.
K. Korovin strove to convey the changing instants of life, the transience of happy experiences. His work seems to flicker in variegation, pulsating with golden sunlight, creating a positive mood. "Moskvoretsky bridge" is made in a thick, rich color, free strokes.
Korovin’s picture is magnificent. The blue sky, the sun caressed by the water, the whitewashed bridge against the backdrop of the Kremlin towers are spelled out amazingly. The artist had an incredible ability to instantly be fascinated by what he saw, submit to the revealed beauty and capture this moment on canvas.
The charm of the artist’s skill in the ability to see poetry in simple, in the desire to raise the ordinary to a unique phenomenon.
