Military themes are often used by artists. More often depict scenes from battles and battles. The painting by A. A. Deinek “Outskirts of Moscow” reflects the everyday story of 1941, when German troops stood near Moscow, and the fate of the city could have been completely different.
This picture may not be noticed by an ordinary resident of Moscow at that time, but, looking at this work, no one can remain indifferent. Foreground depicts anti-tank structures that surrounded the entire city. Several multi-storey buildings stand without windows, which indicates fights in the outskirts.
A passing truck creates a feeling of turbulent time, but still gives hope for the best. The landscape is very calm, the ground is covered with snow, only iron fences and broken glass serve as an alarming beacon. All work does not express a dangerous threat, but creates an atmosphere of awesome danger, despite the absence of active hostilities.
The painter was able to very accurately, with the help of everyday things, realistically convey the atmosphere of the threat of that time. The arrangement of the elements in the picture is no coincidence, they create the plot and the atmosphere of the work. Thus, the artist expressed his pain and anxiety of wartime in ordinary things.
In the image of the outskirts of Moscow, the master conveyed the image of the whole country as a whole, its experience, a threat to security and dilapidated buildings. This is not just a house without windows, it is a broken hope and a crippled soul, but the country still stands, even with broken windows, but it keeps and does not give up. The view of the city is depicted from below, so the artist elevated Moscow and made the image of the outskirts of the capital inaccessible and unconquered.
The master used gloomy and discreet tones, such a color scheme gives the impression of danger. Deynek’s picturesque techniques are not striking in their diversity, but they very accurately convey the mood of that time.
