The history of the painting
The painting "Lake of Meetings" was completed by Anatoli Gostev in 2007, when the style of the artist's works seems to be already defined, as well as his life in a house near Warsaw with a spacious and bright workshop. The painting was unhurried and reflections on the simple beauty of the world clearly gave the artist pleasure.
The artist Anatoli Gostev told about Painting on the author's website gostevs.com :
On the shore of Lake Staffel, in the foothills of the Alps, not far from Munich - Murnau. Here is the house where Kandinsky lived with the German artist Gabriele Münter for five years. Now this house is "Munterhaus", but it has a second name - "Russian House".
Here stayed: Alexey Yavlensky and Marianna Veryovkina, Franz Mark and August Macke, Paul Klee and Heinrich Campedonck - this is the cradle of the "Blue Rider", a new vision of painting was born here. After breaking up with Kandinsky, Munter returns to this house and lives in it until the end of his days. Many of Kandinsky's works remain with her. Later, risking her life, she saved them in the basement of this house from the Nazis, and then presented them to the Munich gallery in the Lenbach house, along with some of her paintings and paintings of other members of the Blue Rider.
Wandering around the Staffelsee neighborhood, I felt their presence in this place. And it was there that a rethinking took place: from copying nature to feeling the content, to abstraction and to the transfer of an extract of sensations. From these meetings with my Great brothers - artists, the painting "Lake of Meetings" was born - one of my paintings inspired by this great place.- Anatoli Gostev
The impression of the painting
The perfect combination of simplification in painting without falling uncontrollably into abstraction. The landscape in the picture creates the impression of "nothing superfluous", beckoning with spaciousness and simplicity. Looking at the picture, you want to walk to the line of mountains, being in full confidence that you will not meet anyone on the way. And only in the distance near the lake will you meet the one to whom you slowly walked through the emerald meadows. Magnificent, one of the best works of the artist.
