Between the date of execution of the painting on top and that of completion of the bottom one, thirty years elapsed!

Alexei Savrasov - Spring
(oil on canvas, c.1880 - completed c.1890)

All the nocturnal mystery of the Russian forests in this extraordinary masterpiece of Alexei Savrasov. If I was given the possibility to keep one of his works forever, I would probably choose this.


Alexei Savrasov - Summer Night

I don't want to close this thread without posting this precious work by Savrasov that so far has been missing in it. Please enjoy

Finally, I would like to re-post this extraordinary watercolor painted during Savrasov's tour of Switzerland (he was 24 years old at the time!) Note that this reproduction below is definitely better than the one I posted on page 8: the colors are brighter, and the painting itself is a lot livelier.

Yes Miguel.
This is a much brighter and better reproduction and the previous painting is delightfully looser in its treatment.
This has been a very interesting and uplifting forum.
