Information about author
In Windthrow, the artist turns to his favourite motif of fallen trees, windthrows. In the foreground of the horizontal composition on the left is an exaggeratedly large, greenish-brown stump. To the left, slightly higher along the left edge of the composition, a thick tree trunk with dark ochre stains is depicted. On the right, the full-height crown of a leafless tree, which combines brownish-grey and yellow-grey tones, is depicted lying diagonally across the composition. On the bottom right, a greyish-green tent appears amidst the dry tree branches. The background of this composition represents the thicket of the forest and shades of greenish-yellow on the left and greyish-green with blue flecks on the right. Exaggerated and diminished objects, various plans, not immediately visible, create a mysterious mystical-fairy atmosphere in this landscape.
On the left bottom there is a signature "Selskyi"
