This painting was painted in 1899. It is almost the last major work of the great artist.

The viewers appear with a cold autumn sky. With gray disheveled clouds. The dense gloom is already stretching for half the sky. One can feel the approach of a thunderstorm in everything.

The oblique streams of rain closes all visible space. The wind rips grass that has darkened from inclement weather and develops it together with fresh yellowing sawdust. Gusts of wind are so strong that thin birches bent to the ground.

The same bent silhouettes of trees in the background. Stumps of trees and neatly stacked firewood remain calm to everything that happens. Cold showers are also watering them. And they look dull and lonely.

The first outstanding Russian landscape painter was the first to convey the sad power of the immeasurable Russian weather. Viewers see in the picture a strengthening of the narrative through the use of the artist's pictorial and compositional means.

There is an unusual plot and expression of interpretation. The picture is based on the main tone in heavy, cold red shades. Warm colors were also used in the work, but the artist specially left them muffled.

The audience appears chaotically scattered, thanks to wide strokes, grass, sawdust. And from all this it seems that it is all scattered by the wind that has blown up from nowhere. The image of a birch tree on the horizon and the sky was made using light strokes. Dark, almost black tones, as well as light gray, are used to represent it.

The picture can be called a panorama because of its elongation and bending of trees. In 1899 there was a traveling exhibition, and this work was exhibited there. The picture turned out with its nervous, expressive interpretation and plot, so it immediately drew attention to it.
