Komissarov painted Impressionistic scenes of Russian life that he saw around him. With a love for the natural beauty of his homeland, he focused primarily on landscapes and idealized views of city life. This painting of Samara captures the first snow-fall of the year in the town square. The trees still maintain their brilliant golden leaves of autumn, but a steel-gray sky has settled low over the government buildings in the background. Komissarov studied at the Penza Art College, and was later named a member of the Union of Artists and an Honored Artist of the Russian Federation.
КОМИССАРОВ ПИСАЛ ТЕ ИМПРЕССИОНИСТСКИЕ СЦЕНЫ, КОТОРЫЕ ОКРУЖАЛИ ЕГО В ПОВСЕДНЕВНОЙ ЖИЗНИ. ВДОХНОВЛЁННЫЙ ЛЮБОВЬЮ К КРАСОТЕ СВОЕЙ РОДИНЫ, ОН, В ПЕРВУЮ ОЧЕРЕДЬ, ОБРАЩАЛСЯ К ПЕЙЗАЖАМ И НЕМНОГО ИДЕАЛИЗИРОВАННЫМ СЦЕНАМ ИЗ ГОРОДСКОЙ ЖИЗНИ. ЭТО - ВИД САМАРЫ, ЗАПЕЧАТЛЁННЫЙ В МОМЕНТ, КОГДА НА ГЛАВНУЮ ПЛОЩАДЬ ГОРОДА ВЫПАЛ ПЕРВЫЙ СНЕГ. ДЕРЕВЬЯ ВСЕ ЕЩЕ СОХРАНЯЮТ СВОИ БЛЕСТЯЩИЕ ЗОЛОТОМ ОСЕННИЕ ЛИСТЬЯ, НО НИЗКОЕ НЕБО НАД ПРАВИТЕЛЬСТВЕННЫМИ ЗДАНИЯМИ НА ЗАДНЕМ ФОНЕ УЖЕ ОКРАСИЛОСЬ В СЕРЫЕ, СТАЛЬНЫЕ ТОНА. КОМИССАРОВ УЧИЛСЯ В ПЕНЗЕНСКОМ ХУДОЖЕСТВЕННОМ УЧИЛИЩЕ, А ПОЗЖЕ СТАЛ ЧЛЕНОМ СОЮЗА ХУДОЖНИКОВ И ПОЛУЧИЛ ЗВАНИЕ ЗАСЛУЖЕННОГО ХУДОЖНИКА РОССИЙСКОЙ ФЕДЕРАЦИИ.
