Not yet rated | write a review

Arkhip Kuindzhi was a Russian landscape painter. His primary interest was focused in lighting, and he obtained striking effects by using vivid colors, chiaroscuro contrasts and simple but cleverly conceived designs. Spectacular paintings greatly moved contemporary viewers. Through years of experimentation, Kuindzhi developed a highly original technique, which he applied to an increasingly typical, at times almost visionary, treatment of subjects such as snow-covered mountains and moonlight. Kuindzhi applied composite receptions, creating panoramic views. Using light effects and intense colors shown in main tones, he depicted the illusion of illumination. His later works are remarkable by decorative effects of color building.

His influence led to the rise of a school of landscape painters working in a similarly lyrical manner, which included former pupils such as Arkady Rylov and Nicholas Roerich.
