"Roses", painted by the Soviet artist Konstantin Korovin, appeared before the general public in 1912. Currently, the painting is exhibited in the halls of the Yaroslavl Art Museum.
The period of the artist’s work, marked by the beginning of the twentieth century, was almost entirely devoted to writing still lifes on floral themes. The next Roses were no exception. This motif was often found in his work, the author especially liked the majestic, graceful roses - recognized queens among all colors. The flowers before us immediately fascinate with their non-trivial, fresh appearance.
Korovin uses only cold shades. Delicate rose petals are painted in burgundy, purple, salmon, lavender and golden beige. Small petals are bred emerald and gray-green. The environment of flowers has a predominantly gray-amethyst and azure hue. Together, all these subtlest shades of colors merge into a sad, chilling harmony. It seems as if real cold comes from the picture. If you mentally touch it, you can feel the smooth surface of the ice on your fingers.
There is not a single warm spot in the canvas. Even the small, playful shades of beige, blood-maroon and yellow-green, accidentally crept onto the canvas, do not look at least a little warm in combination with overwhelming cold colors. These roses are beautiful in themselves, they do not need any additions or an active plot. They are a work of art, created by nature and collected by man.
At first glance, it might seem that the canvas is not finalized. The lines are somewhat fuzzy and the composition itself is not fixed on any subject. All flowers make up a single whole, we do not consider them individually. This is the idea of the author of the canvas. This style of drawing reveals to us real emotions and admiration for perfect, perfect beauty.
