I really love Tryst After Death.
I find it interesting that it was right under the painting of Guertana. It must be very significant to him. I really wanna know more about it ;A;
“Tryst After Death” could symbolize a former romance and lover of Guertena who died a bit before the painter finished his final works. Maybe, the lady was pregnant with Guertena’s baby.
So then the artists, who is still grieving and stuff, paints Mary, a way of portraying his unborn child. He wishes she were real but she’s not. She’s stuck as a painting and that’s all she’ll ever be.
I back up that argument with the fact that “Tryst After Death” is placed in front/below of the self portrait and that in said self portrait, Guertena seems to be painting something green. And what is green? Mary’s dress!
