The picture of the famous artist of the late 19th and early 20th centuries Arkady Rylov “A house with a red roof” is incredibly festive and emotional. Rylov's canvases are distinguished by their brightness and originality. His landscapes, including “Green Noise”, “Autumn Landscape” and others, convey the pristine beauty of nature in Central Russia.
On the canvas "House with a red roof", the painter depicted a sultry summer afternoon in the suburbs. A small country house, apparently covered with red tiles or metal sheets painted with red paint, stands out against the background of the blessed greenery of trees and bushes.
The brightest spot, besides the red roof, is an old birch towering above all other trees, a Russian beauty. It is surrounded by low-growing garden trees, and spruce and pine trees stand apart so as not to overshadow the incredible magnificence of the white-trunk beauty. It is this birch that emphasizes the wonderful charms of Russian nature.
In the foreground of the picture there is a wide meadow, which is already almost all mowed, and it remains only to collect dried hay. Apparently, soon a large haystack will appear here. In the meantime, a patient goat is waiting in the meadow when the hostess finishes turning the freshly cut grass. The sun bakes so mercilessly that the peasant woman undressed to the bottom of her shirt.
The whole landscape creates a wonderful mood, as the artist uses bright, rich colors. There is an incredibly blue high sky with sparse white clouds, juicy greens that vary in shades in different parts of the picture. Coniferous trees located far away, dark green, a sloping meadow of a light green shade, bright green foliage on a birch. Against the background of natural splendor, the roof of a white-walled house stands out as a bright red spot.
The picture is unusually optimistic and positive, it skillfully conveys warmth and regularity, a calm flow of village life.
