Why this is a
Masterpiece

The lack of scenery background, essential in other Pirosmani’s paintings, forms here the unique feature of this «Revel», and the same applies to its peculiar integrity and power of characters.

History of the Object
Revels, one of the most distinctive and inimitable marks of Georgian life, used to be a favourite subject matter of Pirosmanashvili, a great Georgian primitivist artist, for they suited the main concern of his art, that is to decorate Tiflissian dukhans (small eating-houses). The bodies are shaped thick with colour and knit with devotional feeling, as on the paintings by the old masters. Opposition of black and white which symbolize the arcana of Existence, invariably slips into fluorescence. Light contours and specks delineate the characters and objects, making the painting resemblant of a mural and stained glass at the same time.
