At the heart of the landscape "Spring" lies the motif of the old Russian aristocratic estate with the obligatory Empire-style house among a park with birch and willow trees. Painted using pure, light paint and full of internal dynamics, Vinogradov’s work conveys the delicate charm of a typical corner of Central Russia, with the first rays of the spring sun coming to life once again.
