about this painting:
In the autumn grove
Autumn is certainly a wonderful time of the year because nature gives us extraordinary beauty. Perhaps the most beautiful place in the fall is forest. It is here you can meet the largest number of bright autumn colors. It is such a forest landscape that the artist Leonid Afremov depicted in his painting. But there are different forests – aspen, pine, and, of course, birch forest. For many of us, they are associated with Russia – the birch is a symbol, albeit unofficial, of this country. Maybe you know some Russian folk songs about birches. This tree is literally light – an even white trunk is sometimes decorated with black spots of various shapes and sizes. Such a pattern makes a birch a very beautiful tree. Birch can be compared to a girl with a thin waist. It is associated with femininity and beauty. It is especially beautiful in the fall, when small leaves are covered with yellowness. Looking at this painting with birch forest by Leonid Afremov, we literally hear the birds singing and the light rustling of leaves. Such sounds we can hear in the autumn forest. Here in the yellowed leaves you can find many pleasant surprises – fall is the most fertile season – it is in the fall that inveterate foresters and mushroom pickers go to the forest for mushrooms and berries.
We have already said that birch is associated with Russia. This tree really symbolizes the Russian spirit, but it is revered not only by Russians – this tree occupies a special place in the culture of many Slavic peoples. Ancient people were prone to deify this tree. They created special groves where only the elite were allowed. Violation of the ban entailed rather strict punishment, right up to the death penalty. It was believed that violation of the ban may entail various consequences such as death of livestock, crop failure and others. The ancient Slavs believed that birch groves protect them from
- evil spirits
- various natural disasters.
By the way, some linguists think that the name of the tree originated from an ancient verb with the meaning “to protect”. The name of the tree is also hidden in many names of geographical objects – mountains, lakes, rivers, towns, villages, etc.
Enjoy the stunning painting by Leonid Afremov depicting the Russian birch forest and conveying the Russian spirit!
