Description of the painting by Alexei Kondratievich Savrasov “Steppe in the afternoon (1875)”


If you look at the landscape of Alexei Savrasov, you can immediately feel the softness of the frozen light, a feeling of indescribable freedom and the even, calm breath of Russian nature. The history of this picture is such that the artist, making a trip to various Russian and Ukrainian provinces, was inspired by what he saw and wanted to capture it on the canvas. The drawing is characterized by amazing filigree technique, the lines are incredibly soft and smooth. The master uses a perfectly matched palette of colors to convey the magic of light as brightly as possible and fully reveal its inner harmony.

The picture seems tender, but this does not affect the harmony of the whole composition, but gives it special charm. The sky is represented by smooth color transitions, which flows into the golden steppe, which seems frozen and boundless. The canvas creates a feeling of peace and tranquility, immersing in a special world, lurking in itself an extraordinary magnetism. The overall image of the picture seems complete and complete, not a single stroke is not knocked out of the general composition. At the time when Savrasov created this work, he was already a mature and experienced landscape painter.

This can be understood by the way he depicted a landscape in which no unnecessary details are observed, and the plot itself has a limited number of elements. One can see a frozen sky, a stretched steppe, a small stream of water and several birds in the foreground. But the special technique used by the master allowed him to create a canvas that attracts the eyes and seems interesting. In the artist’s landscapes, hidden moments are hidden in which he tries to express the spirituality and touching nature. He conveys the most ordinary and simple things, emphasizing and highlighting them with soft colors and a magnificent manner of execution.
