Description of the painting by Alexander Viktorovich Shevchenko “Musicians”


The canvas, painted by Russian avant-garde artist Alexander Viktorovich Shevchenko, exudes the magic of music and its beauty. In the center of the image you can distinguish the figure of a man and a woman. A man stands with his head slightly bowed, holding his violin with his left hand, and a bow with his right hand. The performer’s face is extremely blurry, but the shadows in the eyes, mouth and nose allude to the curves of the face. The musician is dressed in a gray business suit: trousers, a shirt, a vest and a jacket.

The gray color of business trousers is diluted with light smears of ocher hue. The man's hands are also made somewhat blurry, they seem to flow down like melting wax. From the violin come yellow curved waves, similar to the blow of a magical wind.

To the right of these waves are depicted elements made by careless strokes, implying the expressiveness of the music and its magical effect.

With these strokes, the artist tried to portray a sound, which at first glance seems impossible. However, this energy filled the space, distorted the face of the musician and the woman standing next to him. The listener's face is also blurry, however, a beautiful face is traced behind these strokes, and her lips are extended in a slight smile. The woman's arms outstretched to the violin are also depicted as completely fuzzy and unreal. The background of the image is not clear, but you can distinguish between the piano and the grayish window. Interior elements are made in pastel shades of ocher with a touch of yellow and blue. The warmth of the image, the energy itself flows from this violin. Music completely took possession of people, filled the room to the brim. The artist masterfully portrayed the sound itself - intangible and faceless, but tangible.
