about this painting:
Art and its power
The incredible thing about art is that it is capable of taking us any place and any time with a mere wave of a brush. As you contemplate these streets and faces captured in fine paint strokes, you can’t help but feeling you’ve actually been here and walked this cobbled road and saw these quirky old buildings with your own eyes when they were just built. This is how good paintings work and this one is good for sure! In the online gallery of famous Israeli impressionist Leonid Afremov, you’ll find plenty of such wall decorations. Here each city visited by the artist comes alive on the canvas pulling you into the whirlpool of bright lights, colorful reflections and fascinating sceneries rising from the darkness… Are you ready for a trip to Amsterdam in the distant year 1905? Then hold on, our time machine is about to click!
A trip back in time
Amsterdam… A magnificent city where modern night life borders on age-old traditions. Sparkling with thousands of neon lights, it remains rooted deep in the past, always looking back over its shoulder, into the time when its streets were illuminated with just a few dim lanterns. We can clearly see this busy corner a hundred years ago…
· It’s raining and the road is full of colorful reflections dancing up and down its length.
· A lonely old-fashioned street lamp casts warm orange glow on the pavement.
· Winking through the mist, bright shop signs invite people to stop by and take refuge from bad weather under their hospitable roofs.
· Weird-looking paunchy cars from the last century scuttle along the road giving shrill honks and splashing mud on rare by-passers.
· In the distance, we can see a dark silhouette of a medieval cathedral looming against the overcast sky.
