The painting was painted in 1907.
This is a work of impressionistic style. It seems that it is not painted with paints, but woven from the finest lace. At first it’s even impossible to believe that dawn in winter can look so unusual.
The artist saw a fairy tale in an ordinary forest. Viewers look at this picture, and it completely captivates them. It is impossible to break away from this sound of winter colors. The rays of the sun break through the branches of trees. They have fancy outfits woven from the most delicate fluff. The snow-white cover suddenly becomes rosy, it seems that it is rosy cheeks of a child. Grabar managed to convey all this charm with the help of a magnificent play of color.
We see a magnificent morning. Snow sparkles in the sun. All this is conveyed in unusual shades. In the morning the frost is stronger, he painted the trees blue. The sun's rays color the snow in different shades, it even seems that it is a little greenish. These shades are like a prediction of the coming spring, when all the trees and the earth are covered with green. But it will be only later.
Now all the trees and the earth are wrapped in down covers. Tree branches bend to the ground under the weight of a mass of snow. Each branch is written incredibly masterfully. It seems that they are made of fragile crystal. It seems that you accidentally hit such a branch, and it all will crumble right away.
Under the trees are large snowdrifts. Most likely it was snowing at night. The cover is still absolutely virgin: there are no traces of animals or people in the snow. We see the morning, but soon the usual noise will fill the whole forest.
But while the sun shyly sends its rays through the branches. In the snow, incredibly picturesque shadows in the form of lines of azure color. They are as if drawn on a ruler.
There is almost no place on the canvas for the sky. You can see only its small pieces. But even so, you can see that there are no clouds on it, and this is a harbinger of a sunny day.
Grabar used cold colors in the picture. It seems to refresh us with a winter frost and complete calmness reigning in everything. The painter managed to convey the beauty of the morning. All elements of the picture convey the charm of nature.
