Refers to the late work of the artist. Somov's paintings are a reflection of his talent and skill. They are appreciated all over the world. Somov was born in St. Petersburg, in a family where they loved and understood art. He learned to see the beautiful since childhood. Somov became a master of portraits and landscapes, which have recognition and high value among connoisseurs in many countries. He has been awarded many prizes in Germany.
Pastoral is a literary, musical, as well as a genre of painting that glorifies the simple life of the village. Somov knew how, like no one else, to reveal pastoral subjects.
In the picture we see two beautiful rural girls, they are dressed in simple sundresses, modestly covering their heads with scarves. By a combination of yellow and red shades, you can understand that autumn is coming. The girls rest, after a walk through the forest, judging by the basket, they went for mushrooms. The picture is filled with peace. The faces of the girls reflect calm. One of them holds a twig and carefully peers into the landscape.
Another enjoys the scent of a flower. Who knows what they are thinking. Perhaps they regret the past summer or simply admire the scenery around. A faithful dog closely monitors every action of the mistress.
In the middle of the canvas you can see a thin blue strip. Apparently somewhere in the distance a river flows. Heavy autumn clouds hang over their heads, talking about the approaching rainy season. But this day is still warm, and the girls are enjoying it.
This picture depicts a simple rural life, which gives rise to its tranquility and beauty. Somov's paintings are filled with a combination and subtle selection of colors that are characteristic of him. For this, his paintings on pastoral themes are highly appreciated.
The artist’s paintings cause not only admiration, but also longing for the past era, which was filled with gallantry, grace, but at the same time simplicity and tranquility.
Somov's paintings are the property of our country.
