about this painting:
Clock Tower by the River
Time is gold
The cityscape in the canvases by Leonid Afremov is always a riot of bright colors and shades. Right as in this painting. Here we see a classic European town with a clock tower in the foreground. To the left and to the right of the building with the tower, we see two houses with classical stepped European facades. They are painted in yellow and brown shades. As for the roofs of houses, they are made in purple, pink and burgundy colors. In the background we see a beautiful rotunda. The picture represents a complete harmony of urban colors so typical of small European cities. Not only the roofs of houses on the embankment are made in one color, but also the roofs of the tower and the rotunda. Their artist depicted them in salad green or rather emerald shades. As for the image of the sky, it is, as usual, made in multi-colored brush strokes. The buildings lit by the night lights are reflected in the smooth surface of the canal so clearly that we can clearly distinguish the outlines of the windows.
The beauty of the time
Clock tower often becomes the main attractions of the city, and sometimes its symbol. Today, these structures perform a more aesthetic function, but until the middle of the last century they were a vital urban element. Below is the list of the most beautiful clock towers in the world:
- Big Ben. Big Ben is the largest of the six bells of the Palace of Westminster, but this name is in most cases mistakenly attributed to the Clock Tower.
- Rajabai Clock Tower, Mumbai, India. The tower in the Venetian and Gothic style with remarkable stonework was at the time of construction the tallest building in the city.
- Clock tower of the Old Town Hall, Prague, Czech Republic. This tower houses one of the oldest astronomical clocks in Europe.
Looking at the Clock Tower by the River painting you will want to find yourself in such a cozy town and stroll through its streets. But with this canvas you will always have the opportunity to do it at least in your imagination.
