Пост. в 1917 из собрания Я. И. Савича, Петроград


Juon’s beloved distant point of view allows the viewer to see a wide swath of the city. The rhythm of colour and line, the cheerful harmony of clear and bright local colours applied using broad strokes, and the light filling the space enhance the feeling of the jubilation of the awakening nature and people’s good moods.
