about this painting:


Three arts in one

One can find plenty of magnificent canvases amongst Leonid Afremov’s link artworks. However, this fine piece of art by the master is especially interesting, since it combines three different art with each other:

·                    The canvas itself belongs to the art of painting;

·                    It depicts a clown playing the violin and is therefore connected with music;

·                    Clownery itself is bound up with theatre.

Painting today

Any modern artworks journal has a deal to look after, for there are many contemporary artists in the world that produce works of art every day. Everyone tries to become the best master in the world, but only a few painters are able to realise their dream. Leonid Afremov, who has already painted numerous canvases in different genres, is one of the best contemporary artists. It is difficult to compare his landscapes, cityscapes, portraits and still lifes with artworks by Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci or Vincent van Gogh, for those were painters of quite different ages; nevertheless, nobody will disclaim Leonid Afremov’s talent and skilfulness.

The fiery laughter

Looking at this marvellous painting by Leonid Afremov, we see a clown playing the violin. His skilful hands look artificial and seem to be growing out of the flowers of his yellow cuffs. His affable face is radiating content and calm, and the pleased smile painted on his face proves it. Under his black top-hatthe furious fire of his ginger hair is burning backwards, so that the distant houses left behind his figure seem to be set on this fire. You can also see a whirlwind behind his back; and its dark blue colours are feeling the air with some queer magic. And a bird, presumably a canary bird, is sitting on the finger-board of his violin; it seems to be concentrated upon the enchanting music being born there where the clown’s fingers touch the obedient stings. This bird may also be piping, but it is for you to decide what kind of music is being heard there in the world of this delightful canvas.

Buy this and other splendid paintings by Leonid Afremov and let you listen to the magical music lurking about them.
