ABSTRACT

Mikhail Vrubel’ has written three Hamlet paintings in his extraordinary tragic lifetime. The first watercolor painting <Hamlet and Ophelia>, which he has written in 1883, remained unfinished. He could not complete the second version of <Hamlet and Ophelia>, which he painted in oil in the next year, neither. Finally, he has completed the third version of <Hamlet and Ophelia> in 1888. As is generally known, <Hamlet and Ophelia> is not widely known Vrubel’s work. This work is mainly mentioned from the point of view that it is the first literary hero whom Vrubel’ has created in his literature- oriented art world, and it is a presage of the Demon, Vrubel’s central hero’s advent. In this paper, we analyzed Vrubel’s three <Hamlet and Ophelia> from a different angle, nothing but from the angle of Russian Hamletism. For this, in the second chapter, we’ve researched Vrubel’s main artistic credo. In the next chapter, we’ve analyzed Vrubel’s three <Hamlet and Ophelia> in detail from the view of Russian Hamletism.
