Somov, K. A. Evening Shadows. 1900

Notes:
Evening Shadows. Though not the sort of archaizing landscape which provided the backdrop for many of Somov's 'rendezvous,' this freely painted, beautiful scene incorporates the rainbow, an element which gives the picture a mystical quality. Ultimately, it is the light, color, and shadow of the setting that interest the painter. (00692)
