Painting Early spring belongs to the brush of the famous Russian painter Arkhip Ivanovich Kuindzhi. The canvas was painted in 1895, it belongs to the best landscapes of the artist.
The central place in the picture is allotted to the ice-bound river, frozen on the eve of the spring flood in anticipation of the first warm rays that could allow it to release all its power and show itself in all its glory.
The ice on the river cracked, the first water is already beginning to emerge through it, spring is approaching. She is eagerly awaiting the verdant grasses, the bare branches of the trees, and the blue sky. A hunch of spring is what makes this picture so attractive and beautiful.
Every day brings spring closer, the first buds have already appeared on the trees depicted by the artist on the left side of the picture. Very soon they will become leaves, and then they will not be afraid of any frost.
Winter will not be able to stop the onset of spring, this is evidenced by the entire composition of the picture, built by the painter in such a way that it seemed as if the river goes to infinity and ends somewhere in the fog that enveloped the forest, located in the background.
The canvas is distinguished by color and light saturation, everyone looking at it understands that this is not just a picture, but a hymn to impending heat, sunlight, green riot of forests and fields.
Such a landscape can be seen by anyone who, at least once in their life, was chosen in the early spring to nature. And yet there is something special in it - light and unique, something that does not understand and does not catch the eye of an ordinary person, but that the experienced hand of the painter will easily catch and display in the picture.
The picture was painted in the spirit of realism, for which canvas and oil paints were used. At this time, the canvas belongs to the cultural heritage of the Ukrainian people and is stored in the Kharkov Museum of Art.
