The painting "After the Thunderstorm" was painted by Arkhip Kuindzhi in 1879. Now the canvas is in the Sumy Regional State Museum, not far from the artist’s small homeland.

Looking at the wonderful impressionist landscape, I just want to breathe fresh air after a thunderstorm with a full chest. The landscape is filled with freshness. Clouds spilling during a thunderstorm recede, revealing a light blue sky. A haze is still visible in the foreground, but the grass covered with dew is already “burning” with bright greenery.

In the long run, the first post-thunder ray is already touching the fields and the hill. The canvas is painted with bright colors, it has a lot of free space that opens before the viewer, captivating him in a wide yellow-green meadow.

Arkhip Kuindzhi entered the history of painting as an unsurpassed master of transferring light and air on canvas. He did not apply classical impressionist techniques, developing his own unique style. Its landscapes allow you to experience the atmosphere of changing weather.

And the artist was especially inspired by the views of nature after rain, thunderstorms ("After the rain", "Rainbow", etc.). Interestingly, during 1879, Kuindzhi painted two paintings with the same title, “After the Thunderstorm,” which were completely different in mood and color reproduction.

N. K. Roerich recalled: “Once we talked with Arkhip about aviation. He said: "It’s good, of course, to fly, but first you would have to learn how to walk on the earth." And he knew how to walk on the ground. "

Arkhip Kuindzhi was very fond of watching, had a unique talent to notice even the most insignificant changes in nature. It was such a change in weather that he captured on the canvas "After the Thunderstorm."
