Mikhail Alexandrovich Vrubel - a famous artist - realist. The era of his activity comes to the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. The genre of the master is so diverse that it can not be immediately studied. This is painting, graphics, decorative art. You can even note that the creator experimented on his abilities. As quickly as possible, Mikhail Alexandrovich could express his state of mind on the canvases, which always attracted lovers of his art.
Depicted on paper in pencil and watercolor, the work “Rose in a Glass” is considered to be the highest skill of the artist. This masterpiece is fraught with the sad fact of its creation. The creator painted when he was being treated in a psychiatric hospital due to the loss of his son. From a languid stressful state, Vrubel came out with the support of his favorite pastime - painting.
The presence in the hospital significantly limited the range of compositions that the artist can depict. He made sketches with a pencil of his surroundings: the corners of the chamber, all the objects surrounding him, the world from the inside. In drafts, the master conveyed the entire structure of simple objects - a glass of water and a rose. This clarity of graphics by Mikhail Vrubel overshadows the viewer. From the rose comes a beckoning moment of beauty.
The petals are depicted so delicately that the flower seems textured, fashioned or carved from strict material. This rigor is emphasized by a thick stem and incisor shape. But still, the rose expresses fragility. An elegant transition from a dark shade to a light color is visible, so the flower looks both real and inanimate.
Caring painting shows the harmony of the soul and discreet charm. “A rose in a glass” is a picture of the sensuality and anxiety that settled in the master’s soul.
