Isaac Levitan (1860 - 1900) was called by Chekhov the best Russian landscape painter. Levitan created his own poetical image of Russian nature; his lyrical canvases subtly convey the state of nature at different seasons of the year. The book contains reproductions of Levitan's paintings and also of their details, revealing the unique features of the artist's palette. A biographical outline puts the work of Levitan into historical perspective.
