The artist created his famous landscape “Autumn on the Tosna River” back in the 1920s. However, it still fascinates with its beauty and charm of any viewer. His work is distinguished by a complex composition, expressed by many elements and details, as well as active color moments.
With all his strength, Rylov wanted to capture that beautiful moment that he had seen. He wanted to leave the contemplator alone with the autumn nature, its silence and tranquility, the relaxing murmur of a stream and the rustle of autumn leaf fall. Make him relax, listen and feel the beauty. Make stop an endless flow of time, relax and forget on the river bank, surrounded by autumn nature.
The riot of colors used in the work immediately raises the mood of the contemplator. There is an incredibly clean blue stream, and in some places it is blue, and in some places even a clear clear sky.
Autumn leaves are striking with gold spots: it is at the top of distant trees, and on the leaves of a birch so close together, and on low earthen grass. And with it, red foliage, reddened grass and a dark shadow cast by nature onto the river merge into a single whole. Forever green and mighty Christmas tree echoes the remnants of green foliage, and green spots, softly spread across the field.
Snow-white stems of birch play against the backdrop of the landscape, merging with separated trees, village houses and white clouds. Despite such a rich variety of trees, the artist managed to balance all his landscape work. The river flows away into the distance, dragging the thoughts of the contemplator, and leading him into the calmness of the blue expanses. Its landscape embodies the tranquility and carefree nature of the autumn evening.
