Eduard Bragovsky is a shining example of the Moscow Cezannist school. Bragovsky steps away from the stereotypical perceptions of the environment and experiments with unexpected combinations of colors. The artist uses large pictorial strokes to create a vivid sense of the texture of the canvas. Interestingly, despite his reserved color range, Bragovsky’s primary colors are of delicate tints. The drifts of snow in the foreground are rendered with different reflections of blue, pink, lilac and yellow. This delicate method elevates the seemingly unremarkable subject, transforming it into a thing of beauty. The color and layout of the painting help the artist to recreate the special colors and mood of an everyday scene. This genre scene of village life is an organic part of the landscape, adding profundity and a concrete narrative to the image.
