1904, the year of great changes for Russia, the Russo-Japanese War rumbles in the distance, and a revolutionary storm is ripening very near, ready to devour everything around. It was during this period that Arkady Rylov painted his picture - “Green Noise”.
In the foreground canvases can be seen trees, birches and oaks, which bend under the gusts of a storm beginning. Old trees stand steadily and young trees bend to the ground, everything trembles and breaks down under a strong wind. In the background you can see a river, on the darkening surface of which you can see several sailing boats, which, apparently, are trying to quickly escape from an impending hurricane.
Real huge clouds of clouds have already appeared, ready to spill in heavy clusters over green fields. And the distance is still completely clean and serene, there are no signs of a storm, only here, and it seems to the casual spectator who stopped in front of the picture that he himself senses gusts of wind, and the first signs of rain, the smell of dust and torn leaves.
Nature in its irresistible rage is beautiful and delightful; it attracts the eye of anyone who looks at the picture. Everything is clean and bright, and in the distance you can see such blue azure that it takes your breath away and your heart is worried.
The artist managed to convey all the indescribable beauty of spring nature, all the best that it has, and good and evil, all shades and colors, all colors of the rainbow, everything merged here in this picture so that the brush of a true artist can capture them. Indeed, it is only with the help of true talent that one can draw so beautifully, as if it was not a drawing at all, but a perfectly chosen perspective for a modern photo, which is why many admire the picture, rightly believing that modernity rarely gives rise to such talents. And this is indeed so, since the last century was golden, and before that it was silver, and our own century has not yet earned anything like it, since there are no second Arkadiev Fedorovs in it, as well as other writers.
