  1. In my opinion, first you should try to “dive” into the picture, feel it.

    What emotions does it evoke in you? What can you tell about the artist's personality by looking at it?

    After that, you need to find out about the author of the picture, compare your opinion about him with a real person. If you have any information – during what period of life and under what circumstances was a particular picture painted?

    Analyze discrepancies and try to understand why you made a mistake. Look for references to the era and personality of the artist in the picture, try to understand. Can you find them now that you know what to look for?

    This approach is not only fascinating – it teaches you to think and analyze. And over time, you can be surprised to realize that each picture says a lot about its author, you just need to be able to understand its language.

  2. If we talk about old ones, then it's quite simple. Read over Greek and Roman mythology, read some true and popular moments from the Bible, bible stories that's for you and 80% of the pictures are clear

    We are talking about + _ – modern, then the answer was given by Rene Magritte, I will insert here a piece “you ask yourself this simple question: what does this mean? It means nothing, because the secret means nothing, it is the unknowable.“

  3. It is believed that you can understand and decipher any picture. First, find out about the artist's life, what era he lived in. Carefully examine the picture, find the central point that attracts attention. Do not forget about the emotions that the picture evokes. Learn the color scheme — each color is also responsible for certain emotions: red — passion, blue-purity. On the landscape, the time of year and day is important: spring — flowering, night-mysticism, and so on. In general, the whole picture is decomposed into components: plot, proportions, color, main images, composition, relationship + personality of the artist.
