Love is able to push on exploits, love inspires and becomes a muse. Something similar happened with the artist Levitan. Although he was married, one charming creature won his heart, and this pushed him to a number of artistic compositions. The painting "March" is also the fruit of feelings and manifestations of the artist's emotions, to his neighbor in the country.
The warm spring sun drowns loose snow. Since the trees are still covered with snow and there are no leaves, you can see the presence of a birdhouse on the tree. All this precedes the onset of summer. Soon it will be possible to walk around the forest with your friends, enjoying the beauty of nature.
Friends arrived for a short time, and horses were standing at the entrance, tired of the road. What a pleasant picture, how much joy and hope are in it. Only this picture of the artist reflects such bright thoughts and feelings. She is the only one, and he will not write anything like that again.
Like every artist, Levitan had his own characteristics. For example, he rarely wrote winter themes, preferring spring or autumn. But the picture of March is an exception.
The winter landscape depicted by Levitan was a turning point in the history of Russian painting. Surprisingly, so beautifully described winter, the radiance of snow, trees and the sky, in winter splendor, only this person. Before him, there was no such work, with such a colorful description of winter.
There is no presence of expectation in the picture. The horse is basking in the sun without waiting for his masters. The horse's eyelids are covered, and she enjoys the warmth of the sun.
The difference in the picture "March" is the accuracy, simplicity and clarity of this picture. The viewer is immersed in the state transmitted on the canvas. Seeing the lanes of the road on which the snow thawed, seeing the wooden house in front of you, it seems like you are also present in the picture itself. The character of the picture is cozy, and this is its peculiarity.
Part of the picture, which depicts a snow field, divides the canvas into two halves, while contributing to a certain amount of peace and tranquility. The front of the picture reflects a pleasant longing. For example, a wall of a house, a porch, a roof, they are heated by the rays of the sun. The horse languishes under the sun, expensively warmed and thawed. And on the back half you can see a completely different description.
Trees, gloomy state, birch trees with foliage not dumped in the winter, and snow not yet disturbed by the sun. We conclude what the idea and plan of the master is. Although a period of warmth sets in, not everyone has survived the winter and gloomy state. That is, the burdens and worries, the burden of problems and sorrows, did not completely leave. The point is that it is not always easy to prepare for the times of rebirth.
The picture depicted in this masterpiece is natural and true, simple and uncomplicated. But still in the picture there is a complete completeness of the artist’s thoughts.
