Description of the painting by Francisco de Goya Shipwreck

Katrina “Shipwreck” was written by the artist in 1800.

It depicts a rocky coast of a raging sea. In the center of the picture, on a flat stretch of rocky shore, is a standing woman in a bright yellow dress. Her hands are raised to the sky. She’s screaming like that. Dress her wet and torn on the chest. Naked breasts do not bother her at all now for her more important than the other. From the hands thrown out to the sky, it is impossible to understand whether she is asking for something or cursing the Almighty for such an ordeal. She is so busy with her business that she doesn’t even look around at the people’s feet.

Around her on the beach and in the water lying people, wet and tired. One person helps a woman get on a piece of beach. All people look at the sky with their mouths open, toli lament, toli thank, toli ask for help.

Most people are naked, from the clothes on the bottom only scraps of fabric. They are exhausted and inconsolable in their grief. The raging elements suddenly deprived them of everything that they were rich and happy with. In the surging waves, no one else can be seen, only foam, only water.

The sea in the background, on the left side of the canvas, is depicted with foam and waves, continuing to rage, raising huge foaming waves. And in the right part there is a separate small high rock. It is like a cliff tilted to the center of the whole picture.

In the center of the picture the sky is of a clear blue color, it seemed to be cleared, listening to the pleas of the affected people. And around from all sides, as if slipping, it swirls in black clusters, which indicates the continuation of bad weather.

The canopy of the rocky shore, which sheltered the victims, is washed by small foaming wons.

To date, the painting of Francisco Goya “Shipwreck” is in the Cathedral of the Marquis de. About kendo in Madrid.
