The Art of Spring: 18 famous Paintings on Spring
A transition season between the frigid days of winter and the overwhelming summer heat waves, spring time is a bearer of rarely disappointing promises. Nature wakes up back to life, animals run around frolicking in search of new mates and of course! We feel so, but so much lighter!
Seasons have always inspired artists. Perpetual source of inspiration, the inmutable journey of the Earth around the sun scrolls under the marvelled senses of paintors, musicians and creators eager to eternalise the season’s charms.
Is there a clear preference for spring? So many first hand artists have shared their vision of spring : the freshness, the life, the vivid colors of the season of re-birth. The spring spirit unfolds in notes at times cheerful, and at times nostalgic.
For artists, the arrival of spring often celebrates their love and their songs are a tribute of promised times with their cherished ones, or the spleen of a lonely heart in the beautiful season.
The beauty of nature coming back to life is also a great source of inspiration. Paintors spread nuanced colours on their canvas wheareas lyricists offer countless metaphores to appraise the beauty of the season.

Caught in the air, flying above a nest filled with eggs, a bird is shown against the backdrop of a pleasantly cloud-specked sky. And yet the bird is a silhouette, a cut-out, its shape filled with a foliage that appears to be a continuation of the woodland in the background in the lower portion of the painting. This picture is filled with the strangeness and poetry so unique to the vision Magritte
By the time Le printemps was painted, circa 1965, Magritte had long been filtering the visual world from his unique perspective. In this picture, Magritte has chosen a selection of simple elements bird, trees, eggs and reconfigured their properties to marvellous effect.
The interplays in Le printemps are brought into bolder relief by the title, which reinforces the notions of the verdant foliage, life, birth and rebirth introduced by the various elements depicted.
