La Mariée (The Bride) is a marvellous metaphor of the world which surrounds the painter and his beliefs. The painting depicts the intermingling of the real as well as the imaginary world. Mariee, the bride, is dressed in a red wedding dress. The blue background portrays darkness, gloominess and sadness. Contrary to this, in the foreground the bride in her quasi wedding attire expresses joy and sensuality. In the painting, it seems as if the couple is floating. The use of vivid colors and wild imagination brings life to the painting.

One response to “La Mariée”

  1. Father war eagle says:

    This painting is extremely odd. It expresses everything strange and usual that goes on in some Frenchmen’s deranged mind. You have no taste in art. If I were to eat what you called good art it would probably taste like socks.
