The Last Snow; Village of Savvinskaya., 1884.
Garden in the Snow, circa 1880s.
Countryside; Winter, 1877-1878.
The Tomb of Nadia Yakovleva, 1882.
Springtime; The Last Snow, 1895.
Gray Day, 1895.
Early March, 1900.
Horse-Drawn Sled in the Winter.
Winter, 1895.
Winter Landscape with Mill, 1884.

  1. Although I am super weary about snow, these are enchanting paintings that I could look at all day. Thank you!

  2. Enchanting, indeed! Love your eye. Wishing you wonderful holidays. D

  3. I truly loved many of the Levitan landscapes that you posted earlier. Impressionistic yes, but his colours, light and shade were beautifully naturalistic.

    Not with snowy scenes, however. Colour, light and shade didn't disappear but the energy of his landscapes weakened.
