about this painting:
BRUSSELS - CASTLE SAVENTEM
Life in a castle
There are a lot of historical sites in Europe. As artists create their paintings for sale, Europe is presented in the most beautiful way on them. What can be more attractive in a tourist booklet than photo of European castle? You will not hang a photo on the wall but buying an original oil painting with a castle is a good solution. It will remind you of the trip you’ve made in summer.
The colors are very saturated on the Afremov’s painting “Brussels - Castle Saventem”. Water matches the sky: it is almost of the same color. A well-lit castle is reflected in the water and this makes the place stunning. Any person would agree to live in such place if the castle is renovated and features modern amenities. It is hard to imagine more picturesque place than this.
Belgium is a land of castles
The trips are organized to show the most spectacular castles of Brussels to the tourists. Belgium is known for the highest density of castles than anywhere in the world. Some of the castles turned into elegant flower gardens with fountains and stone statuettes, others admire with priceless original oil artwork. Picturesque gardens, labyrinths, glasshouses and other fantastic things make for an excellent setting for a loving couple that makes a trip to Europe. Everything is so alluring here. Many shows arranged during the trip become a marvel for children as well.
It seems to us that people lived in royal conditions and do not know anything about the challenges people faced at that time. Paintings for sale do not include this point and focus our attention on beauty of the places.
Obstacles of life in a castle
The castle life is very challenging due to the following factors:
· It was cold inside as it was hard to keep warmth in such huge building.
· Pomp and ceremony made life organized, so a high level of order was necessary on one side, while on the other, smell in the castle was terrible.
· Dwellers of the castle faced threats of being attacked by the enemy. They had to defend themselves and erect diverse fortifications.
Looking at Afremov’s painting, we see a beautiful castle that takes rather advantages position. It would be hard for the enemy to attack it because it is located near the water. Such places were chosen purposefully. Additionally, holes were made and filled with water to become inaccessible for attackers.
