Actress Margarita. 1909. Million Scarlet Roses from Niko Pirosmani

Million Scarlet Roses from Niko Pirosmani. Georgian artist Niko Pirosmani (5 May 1862 – April 9, 1918) was a primitivist, one of those artists about whom people far from understanding art, say: “I would have painted not worse than that”. But only a blind man can not see the whole poignancy of the artist’s painting. Behind the apparent naivete of painted on canvas animals and holiday feasts are hidden deep feelings – pain through the joy and pleasure through pain. And it becomes more than obvious if you know a little about the life of Niko Pirosmani. When asked about the age, Niko replied with a shy smile: “How should I know?” Time for him went his own way and did not correlate with boring numbers on the calendar.

Simple plot of the song about the hard life of a poor boy and rhythmic strumming of British folk won the hearts of millions of people from around the world. What was the reason for such popularity?

For several centuries prisoners, drunks, vagrants sang this song in UK and Ireland and, of course, there was no New Orleans yet. The British sailed to discover the the New World and took a simple motif with them, close to everyone story that they could sing, even without musical accompaniment.
