The picture of the Ukrainian artist Nikolai Pimonenko "Brod", depicts an episode from the life of the Ukrainian outback. The artist tried to convey a sense of joy and carelessness, to children who, despite the barrier, do not lose heart in the form of a river and barefoot pass it into ford.
They must be returning from the meadow where the calves grazed. Humor is attached to the geese pictured on the right, who are surprised to look at the cheerful company. Children are probably not the first to come back from this job. In the villages, the little guys had to graze cattle, which was an ordinary activity for them.
Wade is not at all an obstacle for young villagers. They are crossing it far from the first time. And this is clear, because the picture does not have a hint of a feeling of anxiety, insecurity or fear. This makes it clear the absence of alarming tones. A sense of calm is also transmitted through the soft green shades of trees and grass.
The river is very beautifully depicted in the picture, the rickety wattle and sandy shore are reflected in it. On the shoulders of the boy was a knapsack, which probably had a lunch of little shepherds. The girl in the hands of a twig, which chases the calves. Across the river you can see a house in which children are probably in a hurry. The picture is very positive, a bright red dress on the girl gives mood to the artist’s work.
The artist, as it were, observes the children and is moved by childish carelessness, but by the truly adult hard work of young shepherds. The same feeling is transmitted to the audience of the picture.
In his writings, Nikolai Pimonenko addresses the theme of the Ukrainian Village. Therefore, he, like no other, managed to convey the spirit, the beauty of the nature of the Ukrainian land and the good naturedness of the Ukrainian people. This picture is no exception. Even the colors depicting the painting “Wade” are kind - the colors used are not sharp, light, soft.
Pimonenko’s painting “Broad” is currently in the Odessa Art Museum.
