about this painting:
Cat in Red
The colors of music
In this painting, Leonid Afremov managed to convey the amazing atmosphere of a jazz club located most likely somewhere in America. The actions in the painting seem to take place in the end of 19th – the beginning of 20th century. We understand this by the way the musicians are dressed. The cat playing saxophone is dressed in a shirt and vest, on his head is a bowler hat – typical clothes for musicians playing in the bars and cafes of the time. His colleague, the pianist, is also dressed simply –his jacket looks rather battered. Perhaps the most elegant of them is the singer. The red dress of this elegant she-cat is just the brightest element of the painting; her paws are decorated with several bracelets, besides you can see beads around her neck. Judging by the posture of the cat, we understand that she is sitting on something. Most likely it is a bar stool, although we do not see it. The cat pianist opened his mouth singing with his vocalist.
The atmosphere of celebration and fun is transmitted through the canvas. The public should be delighted with such a performance.
The brightest color
Since the painting is called Cat in Red and red is probably the most expressive color in this canvas we decided to select some interesting facts about this color for you:
- Red, like other colors of the warm part of the spectrum, visually approximates objects. Therefore, the red background is used very rarely. The pictures with the background of the cold colors look more harmonious, whereas the warm colors are used mainly in the foreground.
- The fact that the red color angers bulls is a myth; actually they can hardly distinguish colors but are irritated by the movements that the bullfighter makes with a cloth.
- If you look at the red color for a while, your heartbeat speeds up. Check it up!
- Red is the most common color on flags and folk costumes.
Thanks to the bright colors and the plot Leonid managed to create an amazing canvas that will always delight you and your loved ones. This is a great gift for any occasion.
