Frost. Sunrise

Painting, 1941, 65×100 cm

Description of the artwork «Frost. Sunrise»

Frost Grabar wrote countless many times. The topic he was fascinated in the early 1900s, and she wouldn't let go until the end of life. "A little light on these stunning colourful polyphony of the moments like a Sunny day frost, where colors, constantly changing, painted in the most fantastic shades, which on the palette lacks colors," - he explained its icy passion. One of the difficulties in the image of frost – the need to connect the graphic and pictorial effects. To Grabar this task was extremely exciting. He wrote frost at any time of day, in any conditions and circumstances: a morning and an evening frost, frost on a Sunny day and overcast, frost, frost and a little bit more (and preferably many) of frost.

It is interesting to compare this "Sunrise" with earlier image of frost at the rising sun. "The tale of frost" written in the period of the passion of the artist and impressionist technique of divisionism – decomposition of color on the canvas. The transience of frost as a natural phenomenon fits perfectly into the concept of impressionism (Iney Pissarro done the noise since the First impressionist exhibition). Early work demonstrates the ability of the artist to go with the color palette, decorative, colorful paintings immediately attract attention. In those years Grabar was a Suite of paintings "Day of frost" and was fascinated and concerned at the attempts to deduce some universal formula of color and light vision. Late work created in a more relaxed technique, it is the result of the confident possession of a brush, the skillful handling of color and light, "Sunrise", 1941, creates a sense of wholeness, "Sunrise", 1908 more about the search. However, to put the mark of "better-worse" in this case does not make sense, but to compare separated by over thirty years of "sunrise" is very interesting.
