SIA Inspiration: Isaac Levitan

So after all the talk of storm, what do we have? Nearly a week of insane heat and mugginess, with just enough rain to make it even muggier without lifting the heat at all. Maybe that’s why I decided to pick Isaac Levitan’s “Calm Summer Evening” for this week’s Style Imitating Art inspiration:

Levitan was actually one of the first classical painters I was introduced to (I think it was one of his paintings as the cover for a Pushkin or Tolstoy collection), so I’m always partial to his quiet, peaceful depictions of the Russian countryside. I know, I know, I’ve been picking a lot of green-and-white paintings lately, but sometimes a nice soothing landscape is all you need. Deadline is next Monday, August 26th. Have fun everybody!
