The artist is Shishkin
In Germany, the most fruitful for the artist was full -scale classes in Dusseldorf. In this city there were several ateliers of authoritative landscape painters, the most famous of which were the workshops of Andreas and Oswald Ahenbakhov. The Russian painter tried to find the episode motives in the vicinity of the middle course of the Rhine, reminiscent of his native nature. It is no coincidence that the Teutburg Forest was chosen to work on kind. Sergey Krivondenchenkov. Collection of Shishkin painting in the Russian Museum // Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin. 1832–1898.

The most significant paintings written in recent months of pensioners are „View in the vicinity of Dusseldorf “and „Teutburg Forest “ – samples of the compositional skill of a young artist, but at the same time, they have all the signs of using a certain „school “recipes. Shishkin is already a great master, but a master who is still singing to a certain extent from someone else’s voice. It is quite natural that for the first of them he was elevated to the title of academician. The picture was written according to academic ideas what the landscape should be: there is a romantic plot, and a well -calculated distribution of light and shadow, well -conveyed development of space, pure, sonorous tones and skillfully introduced stuffage. This picture adequately completes the early stage of the artist.
