“The Bride of Christ” is the first of Nesterov’s paintings, which he considered to be the work that opened up his creative path. In it, in the first, a living soul, suffering, and an idea are reflected - all that without which there is no genuine art. It was created under sad circumstances for the artist. His wife Maria died, she was only twenty-five years old.
A human portrait made up of flowers - this is how Giuseppe Archimboldo's work, entitled Flora, can be described. The face and collar are made of buds and petals, and the clothes themselves are made of falling leaves. On the head is a bright wreath in the center of which is a red lily. From the collar, in its lower part, a yellow lily peeps out like a flashlight.
The painting depicts children who decided to go for mushrooms, but they suddenly overtook a thunderstorm. The picture is large in terms of parameters, however, it simply will not be possible to describe it with a large number of words. But it’s not a natural phenomenon, but children, rather their emotions and feelings, their fear and desire to find a shelter or haven to avoid rain.
The picture depicts the phenomenon of a miracle. When the early Christians spread their faith around the world, it often happened that the Gentiles did not want to listen to them. So one of the young apostles fell into the hands of a cruel king, who laughed at him and sentenced him to a quarter. However, when they undertook to carry out the sentence, it turned out that the body of the young man became invulnerable to axes and the executioners believed in fright.
One of the Hermitage’s best paintings, Van Dyck’s self-portrait, shows us an artist in a creative, uninhibited person who makes a living impression of embodied art, a little rebellious, out of a series of everyday images, and it is through this especially attractive. The aristocratic appearance is emphasized by the masterful play of light making pale skin with the dignity inherent in the embodiment of a thin nature, sensitive and therefore sensual, emotionally elevated and therefore deep.
