The picture shows a wall and a window opening located on it. And in the window you can guess the green foliage of the trees and the windows of the houses opposite.
The author creates an artistic script using color accents. In this way, the artist seeks to show what is important in the picture and what should be paid attention to.
The window is a symbol of the transition to the world of nature and freedom.
It is important to note that the window as such played an important role in Krymov’s work. Many of the author’s landscapes were painted standing by the window or on the balcony. That is why the angle of many paintings is located as if the viewer is looking at the landscape from a hill, which could well be a balcony or a window on the second floor.
The composition of the picture itself is not remarkable, but Krymov was able to fill this plain story with deep symbolism.
Symbolism can be traced in the color scheme of the picture. The wall has a cool gray tint.
The ugly appearance and unremarkable angular structure, emphasize the limitations of the stone boxes in which modern man spends more and more time. The author wants to emphasize everyday life, which contrasts with a bright window full of light and life. But the landscape outside the window opposite is generously painted with warm colors. To write the view from the window, Krymsky uses saturated green, in general, all those colors that symbolize life, happiness and freedom.
Often Krymov is reproached for the fact that the colors of his paints are not bright, but faded and lifeless. However, not everyone knows that Nikolay Krymov did not live so richly and during his student days he could not always afford an expensive palette of colors. Therefore, the young artist had to use paints that were cleansed from their work by more affluent students. However, this did not affect the early recognition of Krymov among artists, because even poverty was not an obstacle to real talent.
