Unclouded purity and clarified perception, qualities associated with mirror, have found reflection in this work of artist. The mirror “corrects” the Present exposing a better image of man and woman and of their union. Here, the painting returns us to a legend about “paradise lost,” natural state of nudity of the first people, Adam and Eva. This myth has received a wide embodiment in art – in a poem by Milton, an oratorio by Haydn, and frescoes by Raphael and Michelangelo. The true work of art certainly includes the dimension of time. Here, the fore-ground represents the present and the background the past (“Golden Age.”) At the same time, the background seemingly personifies the future, its dream, and eternal love.
