Karl Bryullov writes another masterpiece for his viewer. This time, the picture "Narcissus looking into the water." The background to this picture is the story of a young guy named Narcissus. It was still a young son of one of the river gods, according to legend, it was said that the young man had the opportunity to live a long and happy life, but, only on one condition: he should not see his reflection.
Once, on a hunt, by chance, Narcissus saw his reflection, and he was so fascinated by his beauty that he died of starvation in the same place, and the people who came to pick up his body did not find anything except Flower Narcissus . The story itself is no less beautiful than the canvas, the master was able to convey with incredible subtlety that tenderness and those mesmerizing emotions with which the young man admires his reflection.
The artist, not in vain, depicted Amur in the background, most likely, he appeared due to the fact that he felt an unimaginable feeling of love, even to himself. His handiwork, even a passionate love for his own reflection. If we turn to the further creations of the master, we can see that this particular canvas was the beginning of his new period.
In this picture, you can notice too academic and classic writing, which is too prone to patterns. But, despite this, the picture has several tones of originality and originality. With this painting, the artist skillfully conveys unity with nature, in principle, like most of the author's works.
The artist was able, with each stroke, to breathe into the picture an unimaginable sense of naturalness and beauty. Given the subtext of this canvas, it is safe to say that this picture may be one of the best works of the master.
