Sorry I haven’t been active 😢, school and work got me grinding but I’ll try n get a drawing out once in a while too -
‘The Irritating Gentleman’ (German: Der lästige Kavalier), 1874 by Berthold Woltze.
The main focus of this painting is the young woman in black starring right at the viewer.
The first assumption one can have about the reason of her distress is the undesirable company of an ‘irritating gentleman’ trying to keep an unwanted conversation. But if one looks closely, her teary eyes reflect a feeling of deep sorrow, like the loss of a parent and one can imagine the gentleman fruitlessly trying to console her. The mourning woman still seems to find this conversation rather irritating, wishing to reach her destination as soon as possible.
