Overview of the painting :

Spain – Miachil Vrubel. 1894. Oil on canvas. 248×89

   Hot Spain has always excited the imagination of people of art. The artist painted the picture under the impression of the opera Carmen. Passion, emotions, sincerity and temperament are the main characteristics for this picture.

   The plot is clear to anyone who sees the work. Every little thing, numerous details bear the imprint of some drama and expression. A dense southern heat envelops the heroes, the sun breaks through the window, thick walls do not bring coolness. Energy, tension is felt in the poses of heroes, in their views and even in a scarf casually thrown onto a chair.

   The author leaves the viewer with a huge field for fantasy. The public can come up with hundreds of plot solutions, but the starting point will be passion, love and temperament.

   The color of the work is aged in brown and blue shades. Minging together, they form a difficult conflict of the depicted scene.
