Soroka (Vasiliev), G. V. Wing in Ostrovki. 1840 - 1845

Wing in Ostrovki, named after N. P. Miliukov An artist of poetic sensibilities, Grigory Soroka was drawn to the harmony of muted colors and forms faceted by light. Those sensibilities inform "Wing in Ostrovki," a wonderfully simple painting that almost makes the viewer breathe the fresh cold air that brushes the tracked snow and envelops the architectural passage.
