Travel around the artist’s world
Amsterdam is very popular among tourists, but the artist prefers to paint less familiar views that can be ignored in tourist brochures. Modern art is not always about unnatural glossy beauty and glamor – it can be way deeper. As this painting shows us, an old harbor is a very cozy part of the artist’s world and vision of the widely advertised city:
· Amsterdam is very romantic. This atmosphere of romance is conveyed very precisely in this painting, so you can draw inspiration from it.
· Non-touristic views have special charm which sometimes more powerful than majestic beauty of famous buildings.
· The Netherlands is the country where the sea and land meet and create a specific atmosphere of freedom. Don’t hesitate to try yourself as a brave sailor (at least imagine it wandering around the old harbor!).
What makes this picture stand out?
Contemporary fine arts are free in violating basic rules of composition and color matching, but Leonid Afremov values traditions (without affecting his own peculiar style). That is why this painting is remarkable in many ways:
1. The color-scheme is very harmonious and well-balanced. You won’t find any glaring spots which could spoil the impression of the picture – every shade fit in with the others perfectly well.
2. The strokes are very vigorous and generous as if the artist hurried to catch the elusive moment that charmed him. Now, thanks to Leonid Afremov’s efforts, this moment can charm us as well!
3. The elaborate composition highlights the key points, and your eye finds easily the main issues of this painting.
We hope that this painting (as other works by this artist) showed you that art is not dead, and there are things that are worthy of your attention!
