Description of the painting by Konstantin Korovin “Paris. Capuchin Boulevard »


Well, who just did not put his hands to the image of this noisiest place in Paris - the Boulevard of Capuchin. The biggest lovers of this place are the French impressionists, such as Monet, Manet, Degas and others. They wrote this boulevard at different times of the year and from different angles. And it always turned out different: either sharply funny, or somehow vague (painted when it was raining outside), or even not at all clear.

So the Russian painter Korovin also got something in the Impressionist style, a lot of color and light, a lot of people on the sidewalks and luring the lights of shops and theatrical stages.

Korovin depicted the boulevard at the very rush hour, just when the whole color of the nation arrives here. And he did it expertly, in the style of the same impressionists, working clearly from the windows of the hotel. He actually does not use bright colors, he only has them in displaying the lights of shops and in highlights on wet asphalt.

The artist worked either in the fall or in the spring. Yes, it doesn’t matter! The important thing is that he managed to convey the spirit of this boulevard, he was able to sincerely tell how good it is and why great artists and writers often relax there. The explanation for this is simple: it is there among the crowd that you can find your future heroes and you can weave the plot of the next canvas or novel.

That is why they gather there. And of course, the great ones share their experiences with each other. Great, this does not mean that the rich. The boulevard is liberal enough to everyone and not as cruel as life. Here you just need to pull out your ticket for luck on time and keep it always with you. Someone managed to take advantage of this, but someone did not manage to reach people and they became street artists in Montmartre.

Here life is still seething, still here people of the creative profession meet who are lucky now and who are still lucky in the future.
