Advent Calendar: Day 21

Isaac Levitan March 1985 State Tretiakov Gallery

One of my favourite things about doing this blog is discovering new artists that I had not come across before and Isaac Levitan is a great example of this.

His 'mood landscapes' infuse the Russian landscape with a deep sense of emotion, I find his paintings really act on me casting a spell of tranquility. Something that I felt we could all do with in the final couple of shopping days before Christmas so here a couple more.

Over Eternal Peace 1894

Birch Forest 1885-89
