Default The painting where we could see the painter was insane?

A while back some professor claimed that by looking at this one picture depicting a hill with horses and sleighs, you could see exactly what his illness was.

Many an hour did I spent reading about it, analyzing the painting and perusing psychology pages on the Internet. But little did I learn. And then I forgot about it.

But now I am wondering if we ever learned what the illness was. I have tried to google it but to no avail. But perhaps someone in here, who might even read russian as it was a russian professor, knows more about what happened?

Rumor has it that the russian professor story is a hoax.

the artist suffered from severe bipolar disorder among other diagnosis' im sure. the painting sybolizes the ending of winter. the artist suffered serious changes coinciding with season change. think of a human melting snowman, not a burning strawman.

lets keep it our secret though, its fun watching everybody agonize over such a simple little "puzzle".

sounds like an interesting artist but not sure if id want to sit at the card table with them after reading this...

"I'd also wager that out of a pair of playing cards, this person would only be able to identify the left hand one, and would either fabricate the suit and number of the right hand card, or claim that the right hand card was the same card as the left hand card. However, they would be adamant about the correctness of their identification of both cards."
