about this painting:

BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE

Classic paintings – modern twist

Ballet is one of the greatest art types that inspires and fascinates at all times. Tireless explorers of body language and human capabilities, ballet dancers spend years perfecting their skills before they feel confident enough to venture onstage . They flutter gracefully before the astonished viewers making breathtaking leaps and revolving like white tornados. The energy of the dance can be felt even if the performers are frozen on the canvas.

Edgar Degas, one of the best-known creators of classic paintings devoted to ballet, left a priceless heritage of splendid pictures depicting realistic and very vivid scenes of famous performances. He didn’t idealize the art trying to depict only its beauty and grace. Ballerinas appear on Degas canvases during their dance classes, rehearsals, primping and in other characters that are usually hidden behind the theater curtains.

The same approach is illustrative of Leonid Afremov. His ballet-focused paintings introduce us to the usual life of a ballet dancer. But this doesn’t diminish the importance of his artistic message. The game of colors and contrasts, the intricate pattern of palette knife strokes, the unique style of the artist – all this gives a modern twist to the classic theme revealing new sides of beauty and inspiration.

Ballet on canvas

Gentle and fragile onstage, persistent and strong off stage, a group of beautiful ballerinas is going to take the audience by storm.

  • They are warming up and whispering to one another, chuckling and cheering each other up.
  • But soon their careless behavior will be merged into complete concentration and readiness to amaze.
  • One step forward – and they turn into butterflies, light like feathers.
  • Hearts of viewers skip a beat.
  • The greatest of shows begins…

The ballerinas depicted on the canvas look like beautiful fresh asters in their bouffant skirts. Snow-white dresses highlight the warm skin tone and the gentle, feminine silhouettes of the heroines. There is nothing extra in the look of the young dancers: decent classic dresses, chignons, panty-tights, ballet shoes. Nothing can spoil the image of lightness, transparence, grace and elegance. Dancing asters have to show their best this night, even though their performance takes place on canvas!

Testimonials
We just received our 45th painting from our favorite master. The Sun of Sicily is amazing! Glorious colors, lots of depth and texture, so vibrant and full of life! It is a perfect complement to our collection. The way Leonid captures the light, sun, Sky, architecture, and spirit of the Mediterenean is simply breathtaking. Every room in our house welcomes us with color and joy. Material things rarely make me happy, but these masterpieces absolutely do. Each is transporting and inspiring. Pure joy. Do yours of a favor and buy a few. All our friends are now collectors. It's addictive! Many thanks to the entire Afremov family. Top-notch customer service. You simply can't go wrong and the smallest issue is immediately addressed to ensure your full satisfaction. None better! Dr Lani Kass

Wow! I am blessed to have found such beauty & inspiration in Mr. Afremov's artwork. As a filmmaker & DP, his paintings are aesthetically satisfying across the board. So vibrant! So unique! Can't forget to mention how professional and kind the entire Afremov family has been regarding all purchases/transactions. Thank you Afremov's! You are ALL appreciated. Love, Candace Moore

I have now proudly hung my two paintings today in my office; Misty Mood and The End of Patience. I am thrilled, and my work colleagues absolutely love them. My favourite is The End of Patience. The reds, oranges and purples are incredible. The Misty Mood is best at night when the blues have more relevance. I'll be moving into a new home soon, and I can't wait to order more so that I can decorate my home too. My pieces are 100cm x 75cm, so with stretching done here in Australia, each piece works out to be around $300 each. Such a wonderful investment.
