Cleopatra (Date Unknown)
by Wilhelm Kotarbiński (a.k.a. Vasily Alexandrovich Kotarbiński)
Polish, 1849-1921 

Wilhelm Kotarbiński was a Polish symbolist painter who spent most of his life in the Russian Empire. He was educated in Italy and moved to Kyiv early in his career. He is associated with the Art Nouveau movement.

“Cleopatra” is a striking example of his work in the Art Nouveau style, which is known for its intricate designs and emphasis on curvilinear forms. The painting portrays Cleopatra, the last active ruler of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, in a way that emphasizes her legendary beauty and seductive power, which have been subjects of fascination throughout history.

Flowing lines and organic forms capture the sensuality and allure associated with Cleopatra. The use of color and composition would play a significant role in conveying the opulence and decadence of her court. Cleopatra is often depicted in art and literature surrounded by luxury.

Kotarbiński’s work is characterized by a blend of historical and fantastical elements, and his portrayal of Cleopatra is no exception, blending historical accuracy with artistic imagination to create a compelling image that captures the viewer’s attention and invites them to explore the story behind the figure.
