about this painting:

Lock, stock and two smoking barrels… 

Imagine a tavern in the 18th and 19th centuries somewhere in the American outback, pretty tipsy gentlemen playing cards, armed at all points and ready to jump in a second, grab a gun and shoot an enemy who dexterously fooled him. It is this atmosphere that the artist Afremov tried to convey in his picture ‘Poker Cat’, with the only difference that instead of cowboys he depicted cats. These animals were chosen by the artist not by chance - in many cultures the cat is considered a cunning and very hard-headed animal.

In the background of ‘Poker Cat’ the author depicted a lady cat – one more reason for violent disputes, fights, and sometimes even murders.

Imagine the atmosphere of the tavern of 18-19th century

In the Wild West saloons appeared as the multinational crowds of people were moving inland. What was the main goal for the arrival of hunters, gold diggers or cowboys to a city? Whiskey, cards, entertainment and women. All this they found in one place - the saloon. In addition, the saloon allowed them to communicate, learn news, conclude deals, and pour money down the drain. The Kansas newspaper Dodge City in 1884 wrote the following about the local customs, "The cowboy spends money recklessly. He is cheerful, carefree, every day drunk, throws his dollars about.”

But not everything is so sad. Nearly a century passed since the Great Prohibition. As if by magic, in the country hundreds of thousands of bars, pubs, restaurants, taverns were revived. The social revolution of the 1960s and 1970s has also made its contribution:

  1. Segregation has disappeared, the visits of women are considered to be quiet normal.
  2. Different kinds of bars appeared - for singles, gays, sport fans, music lovers, national bars...

 

But if you look closely, in most of them you can find the signs of the past salon. The connection of times is evidenced by the architecture in the style of the Old West, names, interiors, menus, the atmosphere of clubs and bars.

Besides ‘Poker Cat’ in the gallery of Leonid Afremov you’ll find some other paintings that might catch your eye.
