about this painting:
Charming little town of the 15th century
We value historical buildings much. We cherish them as they are pieces of art. Does that mean that modern architecture is worse? Nothing of the kind! The technologies available now are able to do wonders and Middle Centuries architects could only dream of these means. However, old buildings cannot be compared with modern ones. It seems that history is felt beside them. Such thing as energy sounds as a supernatural thing but this is a fact. The science, probably, is not developed enough for this discovery. The point is that genuine pieces of art are more valuable. If you compare different kinds of paintings, art prints can’t be even compared with them. You should learn to see the difference between original art and prints. Prints can’t be substitutes to original artworks as modern buildings are not able to replace the ancient architecture.
Burges of the 15th century in a modern world
We offer original oil paintings, art pieces of famous Impressionist painter Leonid Afremov. The oil canvas “Brughes” shows a famous medieval town that has almost completely forgotten about allachievements ofcivilizationsuchasskyscrapers,highwaysandshopping malls. The most contemporary cities are not far from Bruges. You will be surprised to know that:
· It takes 2.5 hours to get to this town from Paris.
· It takes 4 hours to get here from Amsterdam.
Nevertheless, the town is left untouched and there is some allure in it.
This charmingtown has a beautiful historic center withcanals. The swans swim gracefullythere and this detail adds more fascination to the town. Nothingchanges for centuries in Bruges. Itshouses,churches and chapelsstillinspireawe andrespect withtheir strictandsolemn appearance. TheMarket Square isstill full of buyersandgapingonlookers as it was in olden days.
Burges is a famous tourist attraction
The only thing thatconfusesa quiet lifestyleof the city - thetourists coming to Bruges. There are many of themin the summer months, onweekendsand Christmas.
Leonid Afremov does not depict the town. It is important for him to capture the mood of the environment and its atmosphere. Creating his artworks "enplein air", he makes the light environment the main object on the canvas. You can see how air is gradually mixing with the old historic building that looks like a castle.
