Girv A. A. Still life with a bat game.

Girv Alfred Alexandrovich (1880-1918). Still Life with Bat Game 1913. On a thick stone tabletop with a well-known tragedy, as if on a cracked gravestone, there are presented: a goblet, beaten game and fruits in a basket. Hanging tongues of guinea fowl, drake and grapes form an almost heraldic symmetry and form a compositional and semantic knot. Death: Her and His, innocent lives, lovers, family; mourned by the sacrificial blood of grapes. In the basket - the nest, the source of every life, in the apple, and the unripe green of the grapes - the pace of just begun life. But for that person only the glory and vanity of the cup. For him it is joy and fullness of life - a trophy so indifferent to losses.
