RE: Alexei Kondratyevich Savrasov and the Lyrical Landscape Style

"The Rooks Have Come Back (1871) is considered by many critics to be the high point in Savrasov’s artistic career. Using a common, even trivial, episode of birds returning home, and an extremely simple landscape, Savrasov emotionally showed the transition of nature from winter to spring. It was a new type of lyrical landscape painting, called later by critics the mood landscape. The painting brought him fame." (Wikipedia)

Art, composition, color, and superb skills combine for another gem of a landscape (or "lyrical" landscape) by Alexei Savrasov.

This is outstanding..

This painting is not just well composed and executed but gives a real feel of the place.

Just wonderful.

This is a familiar sight near my home. I love the sound of mass rooks.

This Russian rookery is very beautiful.
