Some were even more bitter. Like for example Courbet, who in old age was forced after the defeat of the Paris Commune to flee France and live in a small village in the Alps. Without customers and collectors, without friends, without the usual circle of friends. Here Courbet began to experiment with painting techniques with glazes, painting mountain landscapes and achieving subtle (and accurate!) scenic effects. Anna’s story Poznań on canvas “Cabin in the mountains” (1874), written Courbet as times during this period, one of the most exciting in the section “Time: the category of contemplation”. And next – the story of Anna Gor, who heads the branch of NCCA-the Pushkin Museum in Nizhny Novgorod, about the impression made on her as a child first seen the painting Bernardo Strozzi “Allegory of transience (Old coquette)” (1637) and an Egyptian mummy, and history paintings of Bartolomeo Esteban Murillo’s “Flight into Egypt” (1675), narrated by Svetlana Zagorskaya.
