about this painting:


The cosiness of Belorussian cities

This marvellous oil artwork by Leonid Afremov is a depiction of Vitebsk, one of the most beautiful cities in Belorussia. This city has a rich history and great architecture. It is enough to say, in order to understand how important this city is to Leonid Afremov, that Vitebsk is his hometown. The quiet streets of the magnificent city are connected with his childhood and youth, and they are the environment that produced the great master. Therefore, it is very interesting for us, who like Leonid Afremov’s paintings, to look at the charming city of Vitebsk.

The home streets

Looking at this marvellous piece of modern oil art, we see a side street in old Vitebsk. It is rainy evening. No cars are seen on the road, there is just a distant woman making her way through the gloom, with her umbrella saving her from the cold drops of rain. The yellow walls of ancient buildings fetters the road. Some of their windows are quite dark, while other windows are lit up with mysterious reddish light. You are walking along the night street and are hearing the rain drops hitting the pavement, the walls, the windows, some distant steps, some words that are being born behind the walls, inside the warm rooms where people are living their lives without knowing that you have happened to find yourself here by their windows and hear them. However, they all are unseen, and the whole city lies before you, empty, dark and naked. And every building you meet while walking along the night streets dimly alight with rare lampposts contains plenty of mysteries, of other leaves you have never touched and will never touch. And thus will you walk farther and pass unnoticed, a silent shadow hiding itself under cloud of night.

Some places worth visiting in Vitebsk

If you happen to visit Vitebsk, here are some places you may find interesting:

·                    The Annunciation Church;

·                    St. Barbara Church;

·                    Trinitarian Catholic Church;

·                    Vitebsk Town Hall.

If this beautiful city is far from you and you have no time to visit it, just buy this marvellous piece of oil painting by Leonid Afremov and enjoy the charming atmosphere of this Belorussian city.

I bought several paintings many years ago. One was a gift to my fiancée and the other proudly hangs in my office. The first thing people do when they walk in my office is ask about the painting and admire the art work. One of my workers now owns 5! I will be purchasing more soon as I so treasure the one in my office and the other that is now in our house. Stunning work that will bring you many many years of enjoyment!

I'm from China. Knowing Afremov's works for years, since in college. So thrilled to finally realize my dream. For years, I kept visiting this website, picking fav ones and reminding myself why to save money. I'm working as a freelancer interpreter now, finally saved up enough money and got three pieces (four, including one from Amazon). I've already decided which one to buy next year and started to save more. Also get the Grand Canal, my heart was taken by it. For the paintings, the Eiffel Tower one caught me the first sight while I was a student in college. My ex got me a recreation, painted by him, but cannot compare to this original piece of course. The colour and the style are beyond words. Simply cannot describe the stunning beauty (Maybe in Chinese I can). Anyway, love all landscape pieces. Cannot wait to share with my friends and decorate my room. Best wishes, Mr. Afremov. Looking forward to more pieces.
