1860, Kibarty (Lithuania) - 1900, Moscow
River Valley. Autumn
- Period Late 19th century – Early 20th century
Highlighting the last ten years of Levitan’s life, the painting is characterised by the artistic maturity of this keen lyricist, a leading master of the mood landscape. The landscape at hand was created using colour contrast with a generalised painting style. It is distinguished by its purity and the richness of colour palette. The overcast autumn day with its leaden sky is not gloomy; the crowns of trees and the yellowish grass seem to emit light. The painting is musical in its construction.
