Description of Dante Rossetti's painting “Lady Lilith”


The work of the English artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti “Lady Lilith” was created by the author back in 19878. Work on the picture lasted for 12 years. During this time, the artist constantly changed models, and the picture had to be redrawn again.

The author in his work depicted the image of the first wife of Adam - Lilith. The picture shows a beautiful, pretty girl who admires her image in the mirror. This is a modern interpretation of this image. Her prototypes were the beloved women of the author of the work. From one he took a face, hair, from another - a body. Together, the image of a beautiful woman who knows her worth. This is a symbol of a woman who is always right, a secular lady who knows how to show herself.

Lady Lilith symbolizes a strong, dominant man, a woman. She is also dressed in a loose robe, which was also done for a reason. Her clothes mean a woman’s freedom in everything.

In the background is a bouquet of white flowers. These roses symbolize in the picture sincere and pure love. In the foreground there is also a flower. This is red poppy - a symbol of sleep, oblivion. Near the mirror are digitalis, which means insincerity. Opposite images attracted artists of that time. They tried to paint their paintings, bypassing all sorts of canons.

A beautiful woman sitting at the toilet looks formidable, angry, but strong-willed. The attention of the viewer is immediately attracted to her blond, long, luxurious hair. They symbolize great sexuality, and even profligacy. Often they were credited with powerful power and authority.

This mythological painting was created with watercolors, gouache and oil. At the moment, the picture is in the Delaware Museum of Art.

Simplicity, clarity and sincerity of the image - this is what captivates this picture, not only the viewer, but also other artists.
