Golden Autumn, Isaac Levitan, Oil painting on canvas, 82 x 126 cm, Moscow Tretyakov Gallery, Russia
In the mid-1890s, Levitan drew some lyrical works, notably the Golden Autumn. The painter used the brush stroke and color lump to highly describe the natural scene of golden autumn in Russia. This painting is an ode to autumn. The blue sky and the white clouds floating in the sky seem to be breathing. The field is also turning yellow from green, while the leaves have turned golden.
Levitan’s works are poetic, showing the characteristics of Russian nature and the softness of various aspects, depicting the state of nature and the transformation of nature.
