Unlike many people in the creative profession who could not accept the ideals and means of achieving the goals of Soviet power and decided to emigrate from the country, Isaac Brodsky decided to stay and work in Soviet Russia, and for good reason: with his professional creativity he earned universal honor and respect in the most wide circles.
In the difficult political situation of post-revolutionary Russia, at the beginning of his creative career, from 1917 to 1922, Isaac Brodsky painted more landscapes in which he tried to convey the real Russian beauty. An excellent work that characterizes the artist’s work during this period is the painting “Winter”.
Its plot is simple: the artist depicted a winter landscape typical of central Russia: a snow-white field, a tree, and next to it a horse trying to find something under the snow. An ordinary person will simply enjoy a wonderful masterfully painted landscape, but a person who can read between the lines will notice that the picture is filled with deep meaning and a lively response to the events taking place in the country: a horse looking for food under the snow can mean only one thing – that came in the early 20s years of great famine, which is associated with the history of the formation of the young Soviet state.
