about this painting:
BRUSSELS - GRANDE PLACE
At the heart of Brussels
If you want to provide an extraordinary look to your room, you should regard group painting on canvas. This artwork consists of several paintings and creates one composition. Impressionist painters always resort to this means, making a series of canvases placed close to each other on the wall. It should be done in a right way. The proportionsshould be observed at that. Even the weight of artworks matters as you decorate the wall –paintings on canvas should create the feeling of balance.
Recognizable landmark of Brussels
The Grand Place that we see on the painting of Afremov is the central square of Brussels. It is also called Grote Markt. Opulent guildhalls and bigger edifices, the Town Hall are located close to it. Now the Museum of the City of Brussels is placed there. This is a recognizable landmark of the country. Many tourists visit the city annually.
The Grand Place enters the top of the most spectacular squares of Europe along with:
· Trafalgar Square (London, Great Britain)
· Red Square (Moscow, Russia)
· Old Square (Prague, Czech Republic)
· Piazza del Campo (Sienna, Italy) and etc.
Broken integrity of objects on Impressionist paintings
Impression takes a special place in the art of Impressionist painters hence the name of this movement. They emphasize instantaneity, breaking usual, compositional strength of paintings. Impressionism removes the integrity of objects.
Impressionist paintingsare characterizedbya sort offraming and featurea sketchy character: the edgesof objects andbodiesarecut off randomly, the story depicted isnotfundamental and typical, butrather accidental-notperformancedancers, for example, but the moments of rehearsalason the paintings ofDegas.
We see how the color is broken with contrast bright colors on the painting of Afremov “Brussels - Grande Place”. Light that is seenon the ground floor refreshes the painting. The same effect is achieved with white reflections on the ground. Though the buildings are many-colored, the most saturated colors are seen on the sky. There are some people on the square, but they look sketchy. It is a marvelous example how the cityscape can look dynamic. The strokes of painter create this impression.
