about this painting:
Behind the curtain
Ballet is not only colorful performances on stage, but also long hours of preparation. In this painting, Leonid Afremov depicted just the final stage of this preparation – a ballerina tightens the ribbons serving as laces on her pointe. Otherwise, everything is ready – the hair is tied in a neat topknot on the back of heer head, her ballet skirt is ironed – a wide hem is spread across the floor occupying a large part of the canvas.
The artist, as always, depicted the background of the painting in the form of bright brushstrokes of different colors – we can see orange, yellow, blue and violet shades. But nevertheless dark colors prevail in them – right in the center we see a rather large dark blue spot. Perhaps with this color the artist conveyed the tension of the ballerina before entering the stage. And this is quite normal. Every self-respecting artist, no matter how professional he is, always experiences some kind of excitement before the performance. And the character of our canvas is still a girl and it is quite difficult for her to cope with tension. But let's hope she leaves all her fears behind the curtain and takes the stage completely calm and will perform the best dance in her life.
