The famous Soviet painter Fedor Reshetnikov was a master of the satirical genre. However, the image of natural open spaces he came out no less good. The painting "In the Country", written in 1949, was one of the most successful compositions in the artist's work. He really loved the village life, so he paid great attention to his own country house. Probably, therefore, because of the themes close to the author, the picture turned out to be so vibrant, bright and warm.
The canvas depicts a clear summer day. Judging by how the shadows fall from objects, you can guess that the sun is at its zenith and is in no hurry to fall below the horizon.
The current character of the canvas is a little girl, about ten years old. She peeks out of a wide-open window, curtained by a short curtain. Her gaze is fixed on the garden, and her lips are extended in a carefree smile. This means that even a child enjoys the proximity of nature and the village life is clearly to his liking. The girl’s hair is decorated with blue bows, matching the tone worn on her blouse.
The house in the picture is built of wood. Blue shutters and freshly whitewashed frames give it a look of freshness and comfort. The room in which the girl is not glued with wallpaper. The walls are made of wooden blocks. This suggests that this cottage serves as a haven from the bustle of the city. Its simplicity is in perfect harmony with nature. In such a place I want to spend a summer vacation.
The whitewashed facade of the building sets off lush green bushes strewn with bright buds. A carpet of lush grass and small wildflowers also covers the ground.
Artist Fedor Reshetnikov was a romantic by nature. His love of beauty, hidden in the most ordinary things, is clearly visible on this canvas. Looking at the picture, the viewer involuntarily recalls his childhood and sunny days that fell in the summer.
