The painting was done on the basis of etudes made in the settlement of Molvitino (now Susanino) in Kostroma Province. The work, which was presented at the first Itinerant (Peredvizhniki) art fair in 1871, marked the beginning of the development of the Russian landscape school and birth of the lyrical landscape. Savrasov used this work to affirm the idea that the simplest and most modest manifestation in nature, when inspired by the personal attention of the artist, can carry a full aesthetic content. The landscape appears as an open, unrestricted space, a small part of the universe where ordinary, clear and simple life goes on. The world of the painting is harmonious in its commonplace way, warmed by the heat of humanity – smoke from the chimney creates a touching atmosphere of comfort. N.N. Kramskoi described his impressions of the exhibition, saying that all the landscapes there consisted of “water, trees, even air, whereas a soul could be found only in Rooks”(http://www.tretyakovgallery.ru/en/collection/_show/image/_id/216#)

Плес – маленький заштатный городок на берегу Волги, где Левитан работал на протяжении трех лет (1888-1890). Здесь Левитан впервые нашел те мотивы и сюжеты, которые впоследствии увековечили его имя, а, заодно, и имя Плеса. Золотой Плес – один из шедевров, созданных Левитаном в это время. С поразительной чуткостью переданы в этом полотне ощущение умиротворенной тишины, мягкое сияние предзакатного света, нежное марево тумана, плывущего над спящей рекой… Все наполнено драгоценным чувством целостности и красоты бытия, и, кажется, что сейчас ударит колокол, и полотно задрожит в такт его ударам. Часть белого каменного дома с красной крышей некоторое время снимал Левитан. В наши дни в этом доме расположен Плесский государственный художественный музей-заповедник (http://isaak-levitan.ru/master/1.php).

The Vladimir Road, or ‘Vladimirka’ as it was commonly known, was the infamous route by which those condemned to Siberian exile travelled. In May 1892 Levitan and the artist Sofia Kuvshinnikova were living in the village of Gorodok, near Boldino, in Vladimirskaya Province about 160 kilometres north east of Moscow. It was here that Levitan conceived the painting and completed his first sketches. Kuvshinnikova’s memoirs describe its genesis:

“One day, returning from the hunt, Levitan and I happened across the old Vladimir Road, a scene filled with quiet charm; a long strip of road … running through villages and heading into the blue remoteness. In the distance two churchgoers, and an old dilapidated building with a weather-beaten icon that spoke of an age long forgotten. Everything looked so comfortable, so welcoming. Then suddenly Levitan recalled what road this was … the Vladimir Road, the very same highway along which the clinking of shackles was once heard, as all those unfortunate souls made their way to Siberia … and that quiet poetic scene was suddenly shot through with a profound undercurrent of melancholy.” (http://www.nationalmuseum.se/sv/English-startpage/About-us/Press-and-Media/Press-images/Peredvizjniki–banbrytare-i-ryskt-maleri/Isaak-Levitan-Vagen-till-Vladimir-1892)

Materials:? Dimensions: 112.8 x 164 cm. Nr.: ? Source: http://www.wikipaintings.org/en/ivan-shishkin/the-forest-horizons-1884

The painting is dedicated to nature in the Urals. The artist has chosen a perspective from on high, striving to depict not so much a specific place as to create an image of the country as a whole. Space is built up in precise planes which draw the regard of the viewer into the distance, to the silvery lake in the centre of the composition. The groups of trees merge and flow from one into another like waves on the sea. For Shishkin the forest is a primary element of the universe, like the sea and the sky, but at the same time it is the national symbol of Russia. One critic wrote about this painting: “The distant perspective of the forests, covered in a light mist, and rising in the distance over the surface of the water, the sky, the air – in a word, the entire panorama of Russian nature with its beauty that is so very striking, – all of this is depicted on the canvas with amazing mastery.” In this work the artist resorted to the methods of plein air. The epic image of nature is in no way diminished by the mild and free painterly manner. The painting was done at a time when the artist began to be interested in the problems of plein air. While preserving the epic image of nature, Shishkin’s painting became milder and freer (http://www.tretyakovgallery.ru/en/collection/_show/image/_id/226#).
