Constanta Art Museum

Nicolae Grigorescu, Flori de nalbă, ulei pe carton, 300 x 170


Kimon LOGHI (1871–1952)

The painting presents a rocky landscape, crowned with rich green vegetation. A cave dug in the rock shelters a body of water, on the edge of which, on a stone, lingers a woman with red hair, represented naked and holding a white drape, possibly her clothing. The artist had Greek origins and was passionate about the characters from Greek mythology, which he represented in many of his paintings, which is why the woman could be a classic character from Greek legends, a naiad, more precisely a nymph belonging to the aquatic space, because she is near a water. According to legend, the nymphs were female characters who lived in isolation in the forests of the mountains, near the caves. The composition is an idyllic space, chromatics having an important role in this regard. Quite small, but bright, varying between different shades of green, ocher, beige, blue and yellow, the chromatic of the painting contributes to the support of the painter’s fantasy vision. The cool colors are sometimes contaminated with warm yellow-green tones, which temper the strong contrasts and create a quiet and mysterious atmosphere. The mystery is also enhanced by the position of the nymph represented in the profile, whose face is covered by its long locks.
