The painting "Spring" was painted by Svyatoslav Roerich in 1961. At first glance at the canvas, it can be seen that the coloring of the depicted is not peculiar to the Russian land, this is Indian colorful coloring. The artist lived for some time in India, so he was keenly interested in the culture of this country and among his paintings there are a lot of devoted to Indian subjects.
The background of the picture is very bright and dynamic, this is the nature of India in spring. And the people depicted on the canvas represent the spring awakening of the senses, the renewal of the soul and body. In the right corner - a pair of black goats, clearly interested in each other.
In the center is an Indian woman, dressed in a bright lilac color sari and holding beautiful flowers in her hands. Behind her on the heels of a dog of a light color, turning with distrust back on a man. A woman knows that a man is looking at her and is passionate. She smiles a mysterious and alluring smile. A man looking at a woman with a passionate look does not hold back and strive to come closer. Two types of movement are depicted on the canvas - a woman walks smoothly, she is leisurely and neat. The man after her rushes quickly, jerkily.
On the canvas, the artist depicts real genuine feelings - love and happiness. Roerich wants to show real life, such as it really is. He draws an almost invisible thread between spring nature and the human soul.
The landscape in the background is very bright: pink and orange fields, bright crowns of trees and grass, bright blue-yellow sky and mountains. Nature personifies the spring riot of feelings, awakened attraction, love. But at the same time, the landscape is not the main thing in the picture, it is just a connecting link between man and nature. The creation of Svyatoslav Roerich is very lively, he makes it clear that spring is a time of love, a time of happiness.
