Parting by Edvard Munch

Parting by Edvard Munch

Parting is a little death. A common expression characterizes the plot of this picture. The man worries hard, the woman triumphs.

Most likely, the author offers the public the situation experienced by him. The sufferings of men are physical. Feverishly clinging to the area of the chest where the heart is, he is deathly pale. On the contrary, the blood-red stain at the man’s feet, as well as appearing around the arm, illustrates pain and anxiety. The black spots around a lifeless tree are a symbol of emotional death.

A woman in a bright, on the contrary, radiates confidence and determination. Her dress continues to the sandy beach, and her hair, caught in the wind, is ready to disperse the black clouds. Interestingly, the female figure is absolutely devoid of individual traits. This is a generalized image; on the contrary, man is an individual.

The author interprets the difference in the perception of the gap as a misfortune for a man and a new opportunity for a woman. The bias of the master is obvious and is due to personal life experience. The color scheme of the picture is stingy, but it is organic and conveys an atmosphere of tension and a depressive component of the plot of the work.
