This picture has an unusual composition. The author depicts himself in the water with quietly swimming fish around. The first thought is that it is a piece of mirror, where we can see the artist’s reflection, but then peering in the canvas we realize that it is not it but the self-portrait at the bottom of the lake. And if in the case of “Sadko” by Ilya Repin the main figure is a fairy tale character, as well as everything around him, in this very picture the artist has placed not the character but the image in the water. The self-portrait conveys in a very accurate way the facial expression and features. This method is typical of advertising but not the visual arts where it makes the canvas memorable, forcing us to return to it again.
