A crying boy. Description of the painting by Giovanni Bragolina

In General, art is a very interesting and creative business and not everyone manages to connect their life with it. Many artists convey their emotions, feelings, experiences in their paintings, and show their great talent.

Children… Many artists drew these little creatures and embodied in them the most cute and good qualities. They drew elegant features, sincere and innocent eyes, and a beautiful smile. But not all artists were like that.

Probably, many people know the Spanish artist Giovanni Bragolina. He was famous for very different paintings. “The boy who cries” is one of his paintings. Looking at this picture, many hearts are wrapped in some kind of sadness. But this is still so, if you do not know the very history of this picture.

The boy he portrayed his own son, but he did not want just to cry. Then the father would take a match and light it in front of him, thus making the boy cry, because he was very afraid of fire. The father continued again and again, one day the poor little boy just couldn’t stand it and shouted ” burn yourself»

Curse it or not, a little boy died of pneumonia two weeks later. A little more time passed, and his father burned alive in the same house.

After that, time passed, and in England, houses began to burn EN masse. In most cases, all the property was completely destroyed, but one thing remained in many homes. Firefighters who saved these houses vied with each other said that there was always one painting untouched by fire. This particular painting was a reproduction of the painting “the Boy who cries”. Then the media started talking about it a lot. They urged people who had this picture to get rid of it immediately. The press spoke for a long time about this picture and people around the world complained about similar situations.

This story scared a lot of people, even now people are interested in it, because it somehow resembles some kind of mysticism. Others say that this is just an accident, but these facts are quite strange for randomness. So believe it or not, this is of course a matter for everyone, but such stories will be interesting and new for many. By the way, the interesting fact is that the original of this amazing picture has not yet been found.
