The work Overgrown Pond is a confirmation of the close relationship of the work of Isaac Levitan with the traditions of Russian realist landscapes. The painting was begun under the influence of the work of the same name byVasily Polenov, Levitan s teacher and old friend, likely during one of the young artist s trips to the Polenovs dacha Zhukovka during the summer of 1887. In the corner of the rustic landscape captured here, the artist united its natural uniqueness with the typical recognizable characteristics of Russian nature.
