Karl Bryullov - Svetlana Guessing on her Future, 1836
“Svetlana” was a Romantic poem by Vasily Zhukovsky. The story is about a girl named Svetlana, who tried to guessing her future on Christmas Eve. She used mirror and candles, like is shown on the painting ( that’s traditional Russian way of guessing).
But then - yes, we’re speaking about Romantic poem - some evil forces arose, and Svetlana sunk into the depths of folkloric nightmare.
