Description of the painting by Mikhail Vrubel "Spain"


Vrubel’s manner of painting is already familiar to the whole world, and no one will confuse his authorship. He worked brightly, a lot of capacity. It happened that I was redoing the finished work completely, which extremely surprised his relatives and his friends. And not always the alteration was better than the first option. This was one of the features of his craziness - to do everything perfectly beautifully.

This canvas has not undergone a complete alteration. And therefore probably it turned out to be one of the most interesting paintings of the artist. True, she could not surpass the popularity of “Demon”. But on the other hand, the author was able to tell in it about Spain, using only a double portrait with a landscape. And on the canvas there really are two - a man and a woman.

But how much true Spanish passion is on their faces. Especially on the face of the Spaniard. These crazy jealous catchy eyes burn with their passion. But the Spaniard is calm, but for the time being. The same passion has lurked somewhere deep down, but if you hurt her, she will come out of hiding and we will see what a passionate Spanish woman is in anger.

Flamenco say the soul dance of Spain.

Perhaps this is so, because no one can dance flamenco so well and perfectly as the Spaniards themselves. This is really passion, rhythm, pace, polished movements and complete dedication to the dance. Spain is such and the artist was able to convey it. Between the two is passion, they dance inside themselves their party of flamenco. But they can never lose to each other. They feel independence from each other, but it is precisely this passion that brings them together.

This painting helped Vrubel draw his craziness. It, too, was at one time expressed through passion and megalomania, through violence and melancholy. Drawing this canvas, the artist somehow struggled with the disease, but the forces were not equal and he lost. And the canvas itself only benefited from this.
