about this painting:
Celebration of Colors
The autumn confetti
In the autumn paintings of Leonid Afremov, we find those colors that would seem completely out of place here. But this is only the first impression. Looking more closely at Celebration of Colors, we understand that everything is in harmony. Thus, in this painting we see quite a lot of green and this is explained quite easily – the artist created a certain enfilade of colors – the palette becomes brighter as we move deeper into the park along with the characters of the painting. Their role, as always, plays a loving couple. And although we see only the silhouettes of these people if you look closely, you can see that they stand back to back looking at all the splendor that surrounds them. And really it is impossible not to admire such colors. Multi-colored brush strokes that cover the whole painting create a mosaic impression. You can be literally dazzled by it. But this only makes it more pleasant.
The art of mosaic
As we said, the strokes in this painting resemble a mosaic. Let's take a closer look at this kind of art. After all, it is very ancient and certainly deserves our attention. Just think – the ancient masters can create real objects of art using this technique. They used first of all smalt, an ancient and incredibly beautiful material. Smalt is produced by melting glass mass with the addition of metal oxide. As a result, they got cubes or plates of the richest range of shades and textures. Smalt is also produced by boloks, which require preliminary splitting. Smalt can be:
- matte and shiny
- with a smooth or uneven surface
- transparent or dense
- colored, gold, silver, copper.
The unusual effect of flicker and glow allowed creating from smalt real masterpieces of world art, which to this day adorn the Byzantine and Russian churches. The technique of glass mosaic was tested shortly before our era in the Roman Empire. Then blue, turquoise and cobalt glass began being produced. After several centuries, in the era of Constantinople, smalt starts being painted in thousands colors.
The rich palette of color, saturation, brightness and transparency of smalt on ancient mosaics is not inferior to the picturesque canvases, and many times more durable than frescos.
We believe that the aesthetic euphoria will overwhelm anyone who appreciates the beauty and understands modern art. Get real pleasure from admiring the autumn colors!
