about this painting:
Central Park – New York City
Heart of Apple
Central Park is one of the most popular places in New York. Even those who have never been to the city know something about it from films and books. The landscape that Leonid Afremov depicted on his canvas is one of the most famous around the world. This park causes us various associations. For some, this is a place to date. You can recall dozens of scenes from films in which a date takes place in Central Park. In this place there is also something tragic. Some people chose this place to take their own lives; here took place murders and other accidents. Those who have never been to New York know this place as the artist portrayed it on his Central Park painting. However, in recent years it has changed a bit, because the painting was created about 20 years ago.
Inspiration in the air
Leonid Afremov is one of the greatest artists of our time. He left us not so long ago and it is rather difficult for us to talk about him in the past tense. This man was familiar with New York firsthand. He spent a lot of time in this city, and knew its main attractions. He first visited this city as an adult, but it was love at first sight. Of course, like any New Yorker, he had his favorite places in the city. Central Park is just one of these places. We can say that from this place began his career in the United States, which can without any doubt be called successful. Why did the artist enjoy spending time in this place?
- It is quiet and comfortable, perfect for painting. No car noise is heard here. Of the sounds, only the singing of birds and the rustling of foliage are heard. It is an ideal place to relax. You can comfortably sit on any bench with a book in your hands and time will fly by quickly. A few hours will pass as a minute. It is an ideal place to reflect on life and philosophize. And of course, it mostly suits creative people.
- We all know that the artist’s favorite season is autumn. In this painting, New York is also depicted in the fall. The artist liked to watch how nature changes in a big city depending on the season. Every year in the fall the park is painted in different colors and of course the artist wanted to capture this transformation on his canvas.
- This place reminded the artist of the good old days. The spirit of the age was transmitted on this canvas.
This painting is ideal for everyone who is in love with New York and who wants to have an image of the Big Apple at home. In this canvas, we feel the artist’s mental proximity to the city. Such an image could only be created by a man in love with New York. It seems to us that this is one of the best Central Park paintings!
