about this painting:
What it takes to make a beautiful ballet
Do you know that there are standard sizes of paintings? There are two measurements as a rule: height and width. Large canvas Link has big vertical height and horizontal width. However, the third parameter is also possible. This is depth of the canvas. This measurement is provided only when the painting is really deep.
French standardsizes forpaintingwere formedin the XIX century. Depending on thegenreof painting, theformatsare divided intothree categoriesand are sortedin ascending order: the rectangularformat, approachingthe squareformatcalled"Figure"; maximallyextended–format"Marine"; Intermediate-format"Paysage" or landscape. Depending on the sizeof the larger side, a number is assigned to each format. For example,
· 8F (46 × 38),
· 15P (65 × 50),
· 20M (73 ×50).
By the way, the painting “Ballerina 3” does not comply with the French system. You will notice it if you look at the table.
In art the size also matters
When you need a big painting, the original oil painting art is too expensive as a rule. Therefore, such decorations are often substituted with large canvas prints. They do not present big value and are rather affordable. At the same time, they can enhance the look of the interior considerably.
Size is also important as the composition of the canvas. Therefore you should be very careful when choosing large canvas wall art. It can overwhelm the room in case it is too big, or, on the contrary, it can let the room overwhelm the art. The painting Ballerina 3 should have a proper interior to emphasize the intense message contained in the painting.
Cost of lightness
The artwork is createdin unique Afremov’s style – it looks like a mosaic. The cold colors of the painter’s palette are concentrated on one side of the painting, while the warm colors are found on the opposite side. What does that mean? Does this show that the dancer is just going to start her elegant dance?She will begin the performance and it will turn hot at once. The ballet dancer is putting on her ballet slippers.
We see light movements, but what stands behind this lightness? Lightness does not appear on its own. Many years of hard labor lead to it. It is a result of tiring rehearsals, years of self-discipline and almost cruel training. If you happen to find yourself behind the curtain during the show, you will see the cost of this ease soaring on the scene and understand what it takes. Glowing smiling faces are instantly transformed behind the scenes. Weightless dancers become usual humans who breathe with difficulty. But we will never see the same on the stage, and we are grateful to our ballet geniuses for that.
