Today I offer you to admire the beauty of the Russian nature through the eyes of the great Russian artist, Isaak Levitan. As the exact number of works created by him is unknown, it's impossible to fit them all in one post. I would like to share only those that are especially close to my heart... and touch me.

 

The Smoke on Water, 1895

The Village. Winter

World famous writer A. P. Chekhov said about it: 'Oh, if only I had money, I would have bought Levitan's Village — greyish, miserable, lost, ugly, but with an unspeakable air of charm you can't break away from: I could look and look at it...'
