about this painting:
CAFE IN THE OLD CITY
Many sides of Europe
Modern European cities strike the eye with broad prospects, spectacular high-rise apartments and neon-lit chillouts. But the true spirit of Europe lingers in the old districts, with their cracked pavement, fanciful buildings and small pubs, illuminated by the same lanterns that used to burn here centuries ago. During his numerous trips abroad, Leonid Afremov never stopped searching for inspiring scenes to capture on the canvas. That’s how cityscapes like this are born. One of a few original paintings available in his virtual gallery, it takes us to an anonymous street in the old part of Berlin busy with locals and tourists on a rainy autumn night.
Using a rich palette of saturated colors, the artist was capable of replicating architectural peculiarities of the old Berlin and conveying its festive atmosphere without using any photographic details. We can’t even discern the picture on the signboard, all we see is a blurred silhouette of an aproned woman carrying something on the tray. The flowers, the tree leaves and the sky are depicted with motley speckles of paint applied next to each other at different angles. Reflecting in the wet asphalt surface, lantern lights form a luminous river streaming down the street together with the by-passers. Full of color and light, this picture is a great cure for bad mood and empty walls!
