about this painting:
In the rhythm of tango
Do you like tango? If so then this painting is for you. But very likely this painting will catch the fancy not only of the lovers of this hot Latin American dance but also of the ordinary art lovers. Through the canvas, we feel the emotions of dancers submerged into what they are doing. This is passion which is cannot be suppressed by any element. The attentive and focused glance of the man looking at his partner speaks about the strain that he is experiencing. We do not see the face of his partner, however, we can assume that she is also in a strong tension. Her head is turned aside – most likely there is an audience that is fascinated by this magnificent spectacle. Their clothes are classical for the performers of this dance – the man is dressed in a strict suit, while on his partner we see an evening dress with a neckline on the back and gloves covering her hands up to the elbows – the classic attributes of the dancers amazing with their truly tango colors. The pose in which our heroes are depicted is also classical for this dance – gently wrapping one arm around his partner's waist with the other hand he holds her hand. His legs are widely spaced and one leg of the girl is wrapped around his leg. This movement is penetrated by all the gracefulness, expressiveness and passion of this dance. The artist tried to use as much as possible light colors in the paintings. So the background consists of multicolored strokes, among which yellow shades predominate.
In the rhythm of tango
Argentine tango, this temperamental, passionate and expressive dance, conquered the world. In this dance we feel the elegance and strength of a man and the elegance and sensitivity of a woman. Here are some interesting facts about it:
- In 2009, UNESCO included tango in the world cultural heritage of mankind
- Initially Argentine tango was danced only by men. The dance was a duel between rivals who fought for the favor of the lady
- The word "tango" comes from the language of the Nigerian people Ibibio and in translation means "dance to the sound of a drum"
- Tangomania, as a cultural phenomenon, began in 1907. It was then when tango started being danced during cult–themed parties in cafes and bars
- In Buenos Aires, people, meeting on the street, yesterday's partners did not recognize each other, because while dancing they were out of themselves.
