Description:
Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin (1832 1898)
Pine Forest in Viatka Province.
Oil on canvas, 1872
17x165 cm
The State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia

In the creativity Shishkin prefers clearness, midday, bright solar light, summer, completeness of life - his picture Pine Forest in Viatka Province is those.

Already name allows to connect this product with a nature of native edge, and time of the tax of a material - with summer of 1871.

For Shishkin and his contemporaries, the image of nature could not be separated the idea of Russia, its people and their destiny. Nothing is happenstance in the painting Pine Forest in Viatka Province, including the time of day, which was not chosen randomly: noon is intended to evoke the image of a Russia whose inner forces are in full development. The famous critic V.V. Stasov described Shishkin's paintings as "landscapes for heroes", but at the same time, Shishkin attempted the most exact and scientific approach to the subject represented. This was noted by his friend, the painter Kramskoy: "The forest is wild, the ferruginous water of the stream is dark yellow, with the stream bed covered in rocks...". Shishkin has been described as "a realist with deep inner convictions who knew how to feel deeply and to love nature with a passion...". But with all of this in mind, it must be pointed out that the artist introduces contrasts into his landscape, making it theatrical and giving us a kind of "spectacle of nature".
