Description of the painting by Ivan Seleznev In Pompeii

The Roman Empire was mighty. Differing in weight and strength and its individual colonies and cities. The famous Pompey was no exception, it’s a pity that it didn’t last long. Burned was beautiful and beautiful along with everyone and everyone who was in it. Why have people suffered so much, why have they guilty before God? Perhaps it was so sinful the whole village that the Lord decided to wipe it completely off the face of the earth so that there would be no trace or memory of it left.

Analyzing the decoration of these two, we can conclude that they are not poor people. Most likely, we face aristocrats. They are sitting in the garden, far from prying eyes. But what it is: the desire for simple solitude or the desire that no one saw them, did not solve the secrets of their meetings. Rather, the first, because they sit absolutely calmly, nothing gives excitement in their camps.

The weather is changing rapidly, the wind picks up the fallen leaves. I can hear the breath of autumn. And what will happen in the fall with their feelings, is it not the last for them. Will not their terrible case, which did not leave alive a single inhabitant of Pompeii, be separated? ..
