Poznan – National Museum in Poznan (Leon Dołżycki)

This artwork was painted in 1922 by Leon Dołżycki, a Polish painter who lived from 1888 until 1965. The English translation of the painting name is mourner, and as far as I can tell, it is a representation of the sadness after a funeral but with colour which suggests positivity and hope. Perhaps there’s also an element on now being alone in the aftermath which is indicated, but frankly, I have no idea what I’m writing about, so the artist probably intended something entirely different. But I still liked the painting, it seemed quite bold and intriguing.
