a very sad portrait






By Alice Pike Barney








when I first saw the second painting I thought it was quite a joyous painting, but looking at it closely I believe it is something completely different

  1. I agree with you! The painting completely looks different because it's somewhat scary.

  2. He looks sad, almost debating life. Like he found happiness at that place once, and is back longing for a past feeling. I think its a girl, either a lover or his sister. I personally think its about this man who a glorious childhood, and him and his sister would go there often. Then he made some decisions forced his family out of his life, and he wound up there trying to figure out how to get back to better times.
