about this painting:
Some reasons for loving clownery
This splendid link art work is dedicated to a clown. There are many people in the word who truly enjoy clowns’ performances. Why do they do so?
1. A clown is an ambivalent figure that is simultaneously cheerful and sad.
2. People tend to like the unpredictability caused by such an ambivalence.
3. Moreover, many children find clowns extremely interesting due to their unusual appearance and behaviour.
Who is likely to appreciate this painting?
Looking at this lovely artwork 22 years old persons will feel not the same feelings as 7 years old children do. However, everybody who likes laughter and the traditional European culture, the strange people wearing motley and behaving as if the whole world were upside down will find this fine canvas by Leonid Afremov extremely interesting to look at. No doubt that it will bring you solely positive emotions; therefore, if you feel lonely or sad, just look at this delightful painting.
When laughter is being born
Looking at this marvellous painting by Leonid Afremov, we see a clown playing the violin. His face is painted white and red and is bearing a contented expression. Everything in his appearance is exaggerated: his nose is too big, round and red; his boots are so enormous and gaudy that their very appearance makes you laugh; the clown’s dress breaks all the rules and conventions, and yet it is pleasant to look at this man, for he bears the chaos of laughter inside himself and you feel this chaos inside you any time you look at this comic figure. It is impossible for us to listen to the music he is playing, but we can be sure that his music does not differ much from his clothes and fills those who are able to hear its sounds with laughter and good mood. You see no people reacting to his performance, and yet it is obvious that everyone is happy, for the bright background burning with hot variegated flashes around the clown shows you the atmosphere reigning there in the world of the painting.
If you are looking for a good artwork for home, this fine painting by Leonid Afremov will provide you with everything you need to decorate your room.
