In this painting, the two artists Yakovlev revive the classical form of the portrait. In the early 1910's artists played in the "House of interludes" in St. Petersburg in A. pantomime Schnitzler's "Scarf Columbine": Yakovlev in the role of harlequin, the two artists in the role of Pierrot. Their double self-portrait – tribute to the passion theatre.

The idea is to show the inseparable connection of arts and Sciences. In the center of the composition – allegorical figures: Painting, Architecture, Sculpture. Next to them are the muses: Polyhymnia (Muse of the solemn hymns), Clio (Muse of history), calliope (Muse of epic poetry, science and philosophy). On the shore there are Thalia (the Muse of Comedy and light poetry) and Terpsichore (Muse of dance). In the air froze Euterpe (Muse of lyric poetry and music) and Erato (Muse of love songs. Near the lake, thinking I sit motionless Melpomene (Muse of tragedy) and Urania (Muse of astronomy). In this idyllic landscape filled with silence and peace: Ministry of the muses does not tolerate vanity.

In the picture there is an interesting detail that is not immediately possible to notice in the right corner under the trees the artist painted deer come to drink. In early Christian symbolism the image of the deer thirsting meant the desire of the soul to eternal truth, to God.

This is a programmatic work of early classicism: the painting is built like antique bas-relief dedicated to the myth of the hero Meleager.

In the Middle ages and during the Renaissance, in the center of the picture was always the figures, the Carracci on the foreground landscape. The artist expresses revolutionary for its time thought: history does not dominate, it is a part of the infinite world. Carracci creates a new concept of landscape that will be developed in the composer.

added a description of the artwork Pieta Annibale Carracci
This painting is a reinterpretation of the pietà of Michelangelo. Carracci introduces new plot Michelangelo, this is not a Renaissance vision. Firstly, not the whole composition that Michelangelo: the composition is divided into two diagonals, the diagonal becomes a way of transmission. The main compositional center off-center (the compositional center of the Renaissance – always in the middle), it is a demonstration of instability. Secondly, the light coming at the main figure and the dark background creates a contrast that enhances the emotional impact of the work: technique, typical of Caravaggio and his followers.

The shepherds living in idyllically beautiful country of Arcadia, a Paradise on earth, consider the tombstone. On it is carved the epitaph: Et in Arcadia Ego ("And I was in Arcadia"). Young people are at a loss: they clearly for the first time faced with reminders of death, which is inevitable even in a carefree Arcadia. So Poussin creates the classic version of the Baroque vanitas genre.
