The famous Russian artist Yuri Pimenov about a year before the end of World War II creates an almost lively picture called Front Road. Just a couple of years before the author had written another no less famous work called New Moscow, which very closely intersects with the wartime picture and depicts the same action of the main character, changing only the surrounding background.
In these two paintings, the artist paints a girl from the perspective of driving as if we were driving with her in a car and watching what was happening. In New Moscow, Pimenov demonstrates his vision of the future in the city, but after the beginning of the tragic era in world history, the artist paints a picture of the Front Road showing us the same city, defeated and plundered by the Nazis.
The girl behind the wheel of a car, apparently, is talking with her military companion, discussing what is happening around. Large trucks passing by them carrying crowds of soldiers pass by them, and broken equipment lies on the side of the road. If you look at the details, you can see a column of smoke from the houses that meet along the way. Based on these details, there is a clear understanding that the artist depicted an indescribable atmosphere in the picture immediately after the battle.
Yury Pimenov in his famous work The Front Road very accurately caught the spirit of wartime, conveying to us the emotions of this truly difficult period in the history of Russia and the whole world. The panorama of the ruined city, which in the previous picture New Moscow radiated a bright and happy future, makes you shudder from the unpredictability of terrible changes. Beautiful new houses, expensive cars and crowds of people hurrying about their business gave way to ruined buildings, broken military equipment and the void around.
