Konstantin Gorbatov - a painter with a recognizable style, he was an artist of a romantic worldview, the author of half-hint landscapes with ancient churches, rivers, ships. Etudes “Sunflowers” presented at the exhibition 1933, “Marina. Capri "1926 and The Italian House of 1926 - plein air observations of the artist. The works were already written during the years of Gorbatov's emigration. He left Russia in 1922 and spent the first few years in Italy, a country in which he fell in love with his first trip as a senior citizen of the Imperial Academy of Arts. In Italy, nature was the best suited to Gorbatov’s favorite colorful palette. It is characterized by pasty painting, a wide soft “dancing” brushstroke, the rhythm of which often turns into a vibrating pointel. The artist definitely felt how to recreate a transparent light-air environment on canvas, to give the viewer a feeling of warmth, sun, the smell of the sea.
