The painting “Death of the Commissar” took first place in the Russian process of painting by Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin. This creation was promoted by an important picture with the plot “After the Battle”. One of the leading for the artist was the content of life, sacrifice and death, which are clearly revealed in his masterpiece.
This theme is more deeply embodied in the film "The Death of the Commissar." In the database of episodes of creation, the artist included one of the inhuman fights of civil wars. The commissar was defeated in battle, his heavy body lies in the hands of the Red Army, the platoon of fighters continues their offensive. Based on the stability of the plot, the image of this scene goes beyond the precedent, pursuing the peak of philosophy and conventions of sounds.
In this work, the system of art of the creator, an extraordinary awareness of the colorful place and coloristic system are absolutely expressed. Concentrating on the leading group of flowers, the artist reveals an important moment in the depth of space with distant villages, bends of hillocks with a blue river. The painter deviates from the classical direction.
In the plane of the picture, people die, at the same time, focusing the attention of the viewer at the time of his whole life. The heroic character is present in the picture, indicated by the harsh tones of the colors. It is not always possible to show the military direction, but Kuzma Sergeyevich clearly convinces the other side of the coin. It is not necessary to be in the center of events; one can express everything with feelings.
People perceive the multifaceted compositional erection of the picture as the unity of the plastic forms of realism. The found images of silhouette outlines contribute to this, the central groups of military associations are shown with inner anxiety and determination. Petrov - Vodkin made a masterpiece that most accurately met the standards of that time.
