Kuindzhi was able to return to the landscape an unusual beauty and a sense of magnificence of the world. The Wanderers sought to explore everything, and the artist wanted to enjoy what is. But he could not escape the interpretation. He comprehended nature as part of the cosmic forces that can carry beauty.
Kuindzhi constantly searched for the image of the world in reality. He also looked for him when he looked at the majestic mountains of the Caucasus. On his canvas they are lit by a mysterious moon. It seems that this lighting is some kind of special, absolutely unearthly.
Kuindzhi uses intense color, which allows the tops of the mountains and rivers to glow, as if they were written in phosphorescent tones. We see a mysterious country that is able to inspire visions full of romanticism and the same wonderful dreams.
The artist first traveled to the Caucasus in 1888. Here he met with an amazing phenomenon, which became a good omen of the extraordinarily beautiful landscapes. Kuindzhi saw a very interesting phenomenon - on the surface of the cloud reflected his figure in an enlarged size.
Mountains are depicted with the greatest pathos. They are absolutely inaccessible, but attract people to themselves. There is an irresistible desire to know something mysterious. That is what becomes the symbol of the world, very beautiful, but completely unattainable.
On the one hand, the Kuindzhi Mountains are as realistic as possible, but at the same time, the artist is especially fascinated by the contemplation of the world. In the universe, earthly and planetary merge. They become one. The human soul is filled with the greatness of the world with a special sound. There is a purification of the earth through the eternal. Thanks to this, it becomes truly special and incredibly solemn.
The paints used by the artist themselves are rather gloomy. But it is they who give the whole canvas a special sound of genuine splendor.
