Description of the painting by Nicholas Ge "Bridge in Vico"


In this picture, a wonderful mountain landscape is presented before the gaze of the reader. The whole picture is painted in warm yellow tones, which leads to thoughts about a sunny place, about eternal summer and warmth. The nature of Italy is unusual - the viewer understands that the landscape was not painted in Russia at all.

Among the two mountains in a small gorge, a staircase paved with rubble. By the appearance of the stairs, you can understand that it was built a long time ago. In some places, the masonry crumbled a little, but this does not spoil the beautiful view in any way, but only gives it a special chic.

In the foreground, the gray-haired man in white clothes is closest to the viewer. A man descends the stairs carrying a white bag on his back. Perhaps there is grain in it. The bag is very heavy - the man is half bent. In his other hand he has a cane - he leans on it when descending the stairs.

In the background, you can see the silhouettes of a couple in love walking in these surroundings, enjoying the sunny weather and beautiful views. The pair has just passed under the bridge and is climbing up the stairs.

The arch is quite high, although initially it seems that its height is not so great. The bridge connects two mountains with each other. The entire bridge is made of yellow brick. Upstairs, no people are visible on the bridge - perhaps they are not visible because of the height. Or maybe everyone who wanted to take a walk on this day preferred to take a sultry heat to take a walk in the lowlands, where coolness from the shade of the trees hovers.

The landscape is not striking with special vegetation - in the foreground we see a lonely tree. The mountains are overgrown with low shrubs and grass that has already shriveled and yellowed in the sun. Above the landscape is a high blue sky. It is clean and bright. Meanwhile, the horizon line is completely invisible in the picture - the bridge, as it were, cuts all reality in half in front of the viewer - into that life that is in front of the bridge, and that which is beyond the bridge and is not open to the viewer's eye.
