February azure - Igor Emmanuilovich Grabar. 141 x 83 cm
A magnificent artistic masterpiece was painted by the painter I. The master especially liked the winter landscapes. He was inspired by crystal frost, snow-covered trees, bushes and paths, the blue of the sky and the sunlight illuminating the Russian expanses of snow.
The painting “February Azure” is an extraordinary work of art! It was written after a walk by Igor Grabar through the winter forest of Moscow Region. It seems that the artist painted it from below, sitting on the snow. Admiring the birches in the grove, the artist accidentally dropped his bag, bent to pick it up and looked upwards. What was revealed to his gaze, he painted at home on canvas.
Up to the blue skies, snow-white trunks of birches leave. Their branches, like white threads of patterns, are spread to the sides, creating bizarre drawings against the sky. Only a very observant person could notice this. The artist experienced fabulous inspiration to create this amazing painting. He saw a wonderful landscape on a frosty, sunny morning, walking through the forest. He was fascinated by the color of azure skies and nature in its fragrant radiance.
On the trees you can see the old, withered foliage covered with silver hoarfrost. Nature "smiled" and "posed" for him. These wonderful moments the master of the brush captured in his memory. The artist used in his work combinations of all delicate colors and shades. A fairy tale came to life before his eyes!
The picture shows the coming spring. Everything stood still in her expectation. A clear, sunny day will captivate the harmony of the universe. Radiant turquoise overflows of light pour a stream on the earth and in surrounding space. In such an indescribable beauty of nature, the artist stayed until dinner. Clean, fresh air filled the winter landscape with a special originality.
The foreground of the painting represents the majestic silhouettes of birches standing in the snow. The trunk of one of them is smoothly curved, as if she is spinning in dance with her forest friends. A small birch grove is buried in a winter dream, but still her dream is short-lived. Soon the snow will melt, the birds will sing, the first green will appear and ... spring will come into its own.
In the background of the composition, the artist depicted a forest. It stretches across the field with a long brown and white stripe under blue skies. Above the forest in the sky is a fantastic cloud in the form of a big heart. This is a good sign. The soul of nature opens its arms to those who notice this unusual miracle. Master brush Igor Grabar - an incredibly happy person! He saw in nature many interesting and unusual things. The artist depicted a heart, conveying to the viewer his love for the world and his native places.
From the canvas it blows with pure grace. I want to be in this winter forest and enjoy the breath of nature. My heart skips a beat from the contemplation of this fabulous landscape. The picture gives an excellent mood and positive, charges with favorable energy, creates a spiritual relaxation.
Igor Grabar is a great connoisseur of nature, who has invested in his unique creation all the feelings, thoughts, emotions, sensations. In the winter forest, the brush master was in unity with nature. She immersed him in the magical magical atmosphere of earthly existence. There he drew inspiration and gained strength for further work.
The scenery is fantastic! The colors are striking in their magnificent combination. The blue color pours magnificent shades. Here, ultramarine, turquoise, azure, white, silver, pearls, light lilac.
