Spring is the time to wake up from winter sleep. Everything comes to life, transforms, revives. It brings the joy of warmth and sun. It's a beautiful time of the year. It was glorified by poets. And, of course, it could not go unnoticed by both Russian and foreign artists.
Let's look at the spring collection of works from different artists.
Let's start with the well-known Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh.
"Spring of Flowering Almond in a Glass"
Van Gogh was a fan of Japanese engraving, he collected it and was inspired by it. The picture with a spring of almond turned out in Japanese spirit. It is a symbol of nature revival.
The painting of almond again — "Almond blossoms".
This painting was made in honor of the birth of his son's brother, Theo. The spring of almond in blossom is a symbol of birth of life and spring at the same time, because almonds — a harbinger of spring — begin to bloom very early.
The following picture of the great Russian painter Isaac Levitan.
This picture is known to almost everyone. It was even printed in literature textbooks and Russian language textbooks. In the picture the sun is warm, everything is gradually melting, the horse is waiting to warm its back. Winter gives way to spring.
"Spring. Big water"
The river is overfloweded. Soon there will be buds on the trees. The blue sky is no longer hidden by gray clouds.
Arkhip Kuindzhi, a great Russian landscape painter, also revealed the theme of spring in his work.
Delicate work in pastel colors reveals the beauty of spring. Ice is melting, spring is coming. In the picture one can see a favorite tree of the artist, a birch.
