“The Secret of Things” in the paintings of Rene Magritte, who wanted to “make everyday life less dreary”

Unfinished painting by William Merritt Chase

Leaving the life of a brilliant artist is always a big loss for art. Unfinished works become a symbol of all that the artist wanted to express, express, give to humanity. Below we will talk about paintings that are not signed by the artist, but despite this they have the undeniable status of works of art.

Pavel Fedotov, “Anchor, Another Anchor!”, 1852

The author of the famous paintings “The Widow”, “The Matchmaking of the Major”, the founder of critical realism in painting, Fedotov lived a short life, but left a bright mark on Russian art. “Anchor, another anchor!” Takes the viewer to a dark cramped room where an officer, apparently serving in remote corners of Russia, makes the dog jump over a stick.
Currently, the picture is in the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.

Van Gogh, “Roots of Trees,” 1890

Perhaps the meaning of the image on canvas is in that struggle for life, which is rooted underground. The interweaving of plants creates the effect of redundancy, saturation, but after some time, individual roots, plant elements, even a piece of blue sky become distinguishable.
Van Gogh worked on this picture on the last day before suicide. On July 27, 1890, he shot himself in the chest with a revolver.
The painting is currently in the Vincent Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

Ivan Aivazovsky, “The explosion of the Turkish ship”, 1900

The plot for the picture was a historical fact – during the struggle with the Turkish conquerors, one of the Greeks blew up a ship belonging to the Turks. Aivazovsky managed to write what he considered the main thing in the picture – the ship and the flames with which it engulfed. The artist worked on the painting until the last day.
Currently, the painting is in the Feodosia Art Gallery named after I.K. Aivazovsky.

Victor Vasnetsov, “Portrait of M.V. Nesterova “, 1926

Vasnetsov spent the last day of his life in the workshop at work. Nesterov was a student and friend of the artist, and he, in turn, painted a portrait of Vasnetsov.
The painting is in the house-museum of V.M. Vasnetsova in Moscow.

Ilya Repin, “Hopak – Dance of the Cossacks”, 1927

The painting was painted by Repin in Penates, a manor in the former Finnish Kuokkale (now the village of Repino in St. Petersburg).
This work is one of several paintings by Repin dedicated to Zeporozh (including the painting “The Cossacks Write a Letter to the Turkish Sultan”).
Currently, the painting is privately owned abroad.

There are 10 of the most famous architectural structures in the cultural heritage of different countries of the world, the construction of which stretched for centuries.
