Deineka Alexander Alexandrovich quite penetratingly conveyed deep suffering. The “Burnt Village” ideally conveys the full power of its emotions during the Great Patriotic War.
The artist at this time does not remain aloof from these tragic events and continues to write very dramatic, "screaming" long-suffering and significant works in which the struggle of the freedom-loving people of the Soviet Union against fascism is shown.
This time, the artist extols all the old places in an ominous and terrible surroundings. If the painter used to write urban stories, now he is moving to the countryside, which is saturated with deep pain, suffering. So the disfigured native land appears before the viewer.
In this case, there is no doubt about the position of the artist on this issue. Obviously, he feels the hatred of the enemy. But with all this, Deineka does not become callous and does not lose humanity.
The painting again and again suggests that true art, which is suitable for its time, remains relevant and immortal. The work makes the heart of the viewer beat faster, it excites the thought and gives rise to various associations. Burnt flowers and herbs that sway in the wind, rusty shades of clay slopes and burnt feather grass.
Looking at the picture that is deep and piercing in its visionary power, the idea of how simple some tactics and tyrants are capable of dooming whole continents to catastrophes of new strength again and again comes to mind.
The charred tree trunks and the emptiness in the village, leads to terrible thoughts that make you think about the past and feel the emotions of not only the artist, but also those people who lived in this village. Suffering, despair, but stamina and pride intertwine in this work.
