about this painting:


The romanticism of night cities

This marvellous piece of large canvas art for sale skilfully painted by Leonid Afremov is dedicated to a night city. There are many beautiful cities in the world, some of them are so famous that endless streams of tourists unceasingly flow through their streams every day. However, night makes any city more beautiful and magical, and turns it into some charming and enigmatic creature that seems to have its own life overlooked by those who see the city by day. This exquisite canvas is a portrait of this creature that allows us to see its mysterious beauty.

The deep slumber

This impressive piece of large canvas wall art depicts a mysterious world that is worth entering. Summer has clothed trees in green leafage that clings to their trunks and branches. The paved road is empty before you, though some cars are approaching to you, remaining unseen behind the too bright flashes of their headlights. The yellow houses are steeped in slumber, with the black windows gaping on their walls. Everything is sleeping. The high lampposts are casting their dim yellow light on the road, with some haloes around the lamps. The light itself seems to be flowing and filling the street with its artificial warmness. A vast cathedral towers over the sleeping houses and streets. Dark and slumberous, it is keeping silence, and the holly space behind its walls is full of mysteries that you will never know. The city is sleeping, and every building is full of dreams filling the heads of its inhabitants. They might be dreaming that somebody is going past them, silent and bewitched, and the dark-blue cosmos is slowly flowing above the night.

Some cities worth visiting

We cannot know what city is depicted in this fine piece of outsized canvas wall art. However, there are some cities that are especially beautiful at night. Here is the list:

·                    Saint Petersburg;

·                    Berlin;

·                    London;

·                    Paris;

·                    Rome.

WOW! Received my first ever original painting - it is absolutely stunning! At first didn't really know what to expect as i've ordered one of the original paintings from the Amsterdam's collection... and I have to say i'm kind of shy with colours and therefore so more pleased with the selected painting Mr Afremov chose for me (no way I'd ever dare to chose one myself). I've just had it framed and it looks even more beautiful! Already planning to purchase another one. Have to say big thank you to Boris Afremov - the customer service and whole comunication back and forth was on the highest possible level! Thank you...

I just received 'HAPPY SUNFLOWERS" yesterday and am thrilled. I have been looking and looking for just the right piece of art for my living room FOR YEARS and would not compromise until I found what I loved. I know I will never tire of viewing this lovely painting that does indeed make me happy! Thank you to Leonid Afremov for this work.
