Every painting is a visual replica of the mental image an artist visualizes in his or her mind. At that stage of imagination, that mental image can be incomplete, not in an ordered fashion, or even not fully communicating. The artist gives a definite form to it. What an artist desires can be summed just I one word: expression. Yes, when an artist stands before a blank canvass with a bunch of brushes and the blobs of colours on palate, he or she desire to express the very thing that is pleasant to see, and perhaps which is stirring the artist to let it come out.
Orphan on the Cemetery
French romanticism artist Eugene Delacroix had done the same. He had allowed coming out all the passions he had and expressed it on canvases. Though Delacroix was a romantic French painter, and weighed the passion much for the depiction of art, he tried painting as realistically as possible. The painting Orphan on the Cemetery, he had not spared any effort to be realistic.
