The painting Apple tree in bloom by Kazimir Malevich – the triumph of young spring and natural revival
“Apple Tree in Bloom” is a painting by Kazimierz Malewicz under the influence of French Impressionism. In this direction, colossal importance was attached to shades, their natural changes due to lighting.
The artist worked a lot in the open air, with special attention to spring motives, when the bright sun gives a unique range of blossoming nature. Using as a basis numerous variations of green, blue and blue colors, the master divided the space of the piece in half with a bright yellow fence, behind which one can guess the village houses.
The foreground is completely given over to the emerald lawn and apple trees. The whitewashed trunks merge with violent pink-white clusters, of which there are so many that young foliage is barely noticeable on the branches. The image gives the viewer a sense of the birth of a new life, freshness, air space. It seems that a little more – and we will feel the unique aroma of the apple orchard.

Kazimir Severinovich Malevich – Russian artist of the XIX-XX centuries, avant-garde artist, philosopher, art theorist.
In search of his own path, he tried many styles: cubism, fauvism, neo-primitivism. Creative research ended with the creation of a new branch of abstractionism – Suprematism.
The painting “Apple Tree in Bloom” is typical of the early 20th century, when the master got acquainted with the European movement of the Impressionists. The work traces the reflection of the surrounding reality through the emotional mood, impression, and not a clear image of objects or phenomena.
Beauty, grace, pure colors allowed Kazimir Malevich to create an example of an amazing pictorial reality. The uniqueness of the work lies in the visible display of the annual natural rebirth, precisely noted by the author.
