Painting description

The Morning in a Pine Forest is a painting by Russian artists Ivan Shishkin and Konstantin Savitsky. Savitsky has painted the bears, but the art collector Pavel Tretyakov effaced his signature, stating that "from idea until performance, everything discloses the painting manner and creative method peculiar just to Shishkin" so the painting is now credited solely to Shishkin.

The Morning in a Pine Forest turned very popular, being reproduced on various items, including the "Clubfooted Bear" chocolates by Krasny Oktyabr. According to one poll, the painting is the second most popular in Russia behind Bogatyrs by Viktor Vasnetsov. Shishkin's similar paintings are the Forest in Spring (1884) and The Sestroretsk Forest (1896).

It is believed that Shishkin painted the pine trees near Narva-Jõesuu in Estonia, where he often liked to rest in summers.

Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin (25 January 1832–20 March 1898) was a Russian landscape painter of the second half of 19th century.
His works are notable for poetic depiction of seasons in the woods, wild nature, animals and birds.
