Picturesque birch groves have always attracted artists. Virtually any landscape painter has a picture or even several with this name, what can we say about the three masters of the Russian landscape: I. Shishkin, I. Levitan and A. Kuindzhi. Kuindzhi was generally called "singer of birch groves". Gustav Klimt paid special attention to birch trees too. The beauty of the autumn birch forest, sung by the great landscape painters and poets, such Pushkin, inspired me to create my own birch grove.
A melancholy time! So charming to the eye!
Your beauty in its parting pleases me -
I love the lavish withering of nature,
The gold and scarlet raiment of the woods,
The crisp wind rustling o'er their threshold,
The sky engulfed by tides of rippled gloom,
The sun's scarce rays, approaching frosts,
And gray-haired winter threatening from afar.
