About Thaw. Yaroslavl.

Aleksey Savrasov, a distinguished Russian artist born on May 24, 1830, and passing on October 8, 1897, created an iconic piece of art titled “Thaw. Yaroslavl.” in the year 1874. This painting is celebrated for its realistic portrayal of a landscape, encapsulating the essence of a spring thaw in Yaroslavl, a historic city in Russia. The artwork is a testament to Savrasov’s mastery in capturing the abundant richness of life and the harmonious relationship between humankind and nature, as evidenced by the figures of women depicted within the scene.

The painting, which measures 57 x 89 cm, was crafted using oil on canvas, a medium that allowed Savrasov to express the intricate details and subtle nuances of the thawing landscape. It stands as a prime example of the Realism art style, which Savrasov adeptly employed to convey the raw and genuine beauty of the Russian countryside during a time of seasonal transition.

“Thaw. Yaroslavl.” is not only a significant work in Savrasov’s oeuvre but also holds a place of pride in the Russian Museum located in St. Petersburg, Russia. Art enthusiasts and collectors interested in this piece have the opportunity to purchase reproductions, allowing them to own a piece of Savrasov’s artistic legacy.
