contemplation

08Mar11

The following image is of Ivan Kramskoy‘s Contemplation, which Dostoevsky talks of in relation to the character Smerdyakov from the Brother’s Karamazov: “He stands as if lost in thought, but he is not thinking, he is ‘contemplating’ something.” Am posting because I am thinking of how certain modes of thinking can be communicated in drawing form, &wanted to locate the image from the novel.
